Weekday Sketchers at Highbridge Park
If you ever thought about walking from Manhattan to the Bronx, this Wednesday is your day. Join us at Highbridge Park where you can do just that! Ironically one of New York's newer parks is home to the oldest bridge in the city. A large park with an iconic swimming pool, new mountain bike course among other amenities, it also houses part of the original aqueduct system that brought water from the Croton River to the city.
The old aqueduct that transverse the Harlem River offers us views of upper Manhattan and the Bronx. Want to get higher? Climb the newly opened tower that housed the pumping equipment for the water system.
