Event of the Day

The Parks Department is hosting a public listening session for people interested in having their say on what should be done with the High Bridge, the city's oldest bridge, which is on the verge of a major renovation to open it again to foot traffic (it's been closed since the 1960s). Tonight's event is being held in Washington Heights at High Bridge Recreation Center, 2301 Amsterdam Ave. at 173rd St. A free bus for Bronx residents will be leaving from 164th Street and Ogden Avenue at 6 p.m. The session begins at 6:30 p.m. For more information call Joseph Sanchez of the High Bridge Catalyst Project at (212) 927-5864 or (646) 306-1835.

For a crash course in the history of the High Bridge, and the campaign to re-open it, check out this, this, this, and this. And here are some great photos.
