Celebrating the Reopening of the High Bridge
While the scaffolding has not all been removed and other items here and there that still remain to be done, the High Bridge officially opened this morning, June 9, 2015, amid much pomp and circumstance. Visitors to this historic New York iconic landmark can now cross the Harlem River on a bridge without having to deal with the motorized traffic so common to most other bridges. The views are breathtaking. The vision to restore the High Bridge has been a long time in coming.
