High Bridge Water Tower

High Bridge Water Tower

This graceful water tower, located in Manhattan’s Highbridge Park at 174th  Street, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  It has been a visual landmark on the heights of Manhattan overlooking the Harlem River since 1872. The tower was not part of the original Croton Aqueduct.  It was added to serve the growing number of residents in the villages of north Manhattan, which were at an elevation higher than the Croton Aqueduct.
