Urban Park Rangers specialize in the interpretation of historic turning points, both natural and man-made, in our city’s long history. Historic New York programs highlight the history and architecture of selected neighborhoods or parks.  

Water is life! 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 disease and fire. Hike across the High Bridge with the Urban Park Rangers and learn how New York City's oldest standing bridge actually brought water from the Bronx to Manhattan and allowed our city to grow into the 20th century.
