New Book on the High Bridge Published


According to the Bronx Chronicle, "In preparation for the official re-opening of the iconic High Bridge pedestrian walkway between the Bronx and Manhattan, Sonia Manzano will read from her new book published by the Bronx Children’s Museum entitled The Lowdown on the High Bridge on Monday, June 1, 2015. Sixty children from three Highbridge public, charter, and parochial schools alongside parents, teachers, elected officials and staff will join Manzano in the auditorium of P.S. 11 located at 1257 Ogden Avenue in the Bronx.
After the reading, the children will follow Manzano to the head of the bridge at the Bronx Highbridge Park located at 170th Street and University Avenue where they will be greeted by the Bronx Borough President, Ruben Diaz, Jr. and City Council member Vanessa Gibson who will introduce the NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver as well as the NYC Department of Design and Construction Commissioner Feniosky Peña-Mora to start the countdown to the official opening. Sonia Manzano and the Bronx Children’s Museum will present the children with their own book as a gift."
