NYC's Highbridge Park


By Tanya Silverman

Highbridge Park recently reopened to the public, allowing pedestrians to stroll from northern Manhattan into the South Bronx. BTR stopped by this spot on a sultry summer day to walk across the High Bridge (of the greater park’s namesake). The height of the structure offered a fine vantage point to observe the Hudson River and various highway ramps underneath. Inland, there was also some public art installed along the Manhattan esplanade, a series of sculptures titled Oh Sit! 14 Sculptors Consider the Chair.
