During New York's early years, clean water was paramount to the success of our great metropolis. The Croton Aqueduct brought the water we needed to combat the cholera epidemic of the 1880s. 

Hike across the High Bridge with the Urban Park Rangers and learn how New York City’s oldest bridge (completed in 1848) actually brought water from the Bronx to Manhattan, and allowed our City to grow into the Twentieth Century.
