Event description

Description

Moving Marble Hill

How did part of Manhattan become joined to the Bronx by moving a river?

Join engineer Bryan Diffley, Project Manager of the High Bridge restoration, for a walk exploring how the Harlem River was re-engineered and bridged over.

The construction of the Harlem Ship Canal created a naval passage to the Hudson River. Its 1895 opening was celebrated with extravagant festivities. The Canal severed Marble Hill from Manhattan, forever changing the river’s ecology.

Getting from Manhattan to the Bronx was never easy. We'll also explore the history of the bridges that once crossed the Harlem River, the King’s Bridge and Dykeman’s Bridge.

Rain date is September 30.
