A Bike Tour of

The Old Brooklyn Waterworks

Saturday September 10, 10 a.m.

Ridgewood Reservoir


Michael Miscione, the Manhattan Borough Historian, will lead a bicycle tour of the now-defunct water supply system that served the once-independent City of Brooklyn. The system, built in the 19th century, brought fresh water from Queens and Long Island into the city. It was largely abandoned after Brooklyn was consolidated into New York City in 1898, and its components -- pipes, reservoirs, pumping stations, wells, etc. -- were dismantled, built over or repurposed. But some remnants and ruins still exist, and can be seen if you know where to look.

The tour will last 3 hours and covers about 25 miles.


The start location will be at the intersection of Jamaica Ave & Highland Place

Take the J & Z to Norwood or ride to the start

Rain date; Sunday, September 11

NYC H2O is an endeavor on the part of Matt Malina to educate the NYC public about the amazing systems and natural resources that bring NYC high quality drinking water.
