CANCELLED – Time Travel on the High Bridge

Janes Walk

Led By Rebecca Seidel


Crossing the High Bridge is a trip back in time. As we walk from Manhattan to The Bronx, we’ll learn the story of New York City’s oldest bridge—a story of a crucial waterway, visionary design, and embattled city planners. We’ll also imagine what it was like to walk across this bridge in the 1860s, in a time before most of the city’s bridges were even on the drawing board.
