Ben Fried reports: "Following a much-anticipated restoration that got a huge boost from the Bloomberg administration in 2007, the High Bridge is open to the public today for the first time in 45 years, providing a walking and biking connection between Washington Heights and the Highbridge neighborhood in the Bronx." The celebratory posts includes photos of the bridge as users returned for the first time.
In an earlier post, which also features the Streetfilm from 2009 found below, Fried provides a bit more history on the High Bridge, which stopped carrying water in 1958 and closed to the public in 1970.
