A Bit of History about Old Croton Aqueduct
"During the 1830s New York City was in dire need of a fresh water supply to combat the steady rise of disease and to fight numerous fires that often engulfed large tracts of businesses and homes. After numerous proposals and an abandoned plan two years into its production, construction of an unprecedented magnitude began in 1837 under the expertise of John Bloomfield Jervis. The proposed plan called for a 41 mile aqueduct and dam to be built in order to run water from the Croton River to New York City. Three to four thousand workers, mostly Irish immigrants earning up to $1.00 per day, completed the masonry marvel in just five years. In 1842 water flowed into above ground reservoirs located at the present sites of the New York Public Library and the Great Lawn of Central Park. Throngs of people attended the formal celebration held on October 14th and celebrated with "Croton cocktails" - a mix of Croton water and lemonade."

This former industrial site is now a peaceful riverfront oasis just 12 miles north of New York City. At this site, 12-acres of contaminated soil and blacktop along the Hudson River have been transformed into a public park with views of the Manhattan skyline, Palisades and Tappan Zee Bridge.

From Scenic Hudson: "Scenic Hudson was instrumental in rehabilitating this waterfront industrial site and transforming it into a park—co-owned with the Village of Irvington—that offers magnificent views of the Hudson River encompassing the Manhattan skyline, Palisades and Tappan Zee Bridge. Features include universally accessible walking paths, ball fields and a senior center."

The Reservation also has the distinction of being the first official Westchester County Park, whose establishment led to the creation of today’s County Park System of more than 50 parks spanning nearly 18,000-acres. The picturesque Reservation, which runs through the heart of southern Westchester County, features ponds, wooden footbridges, and hundreds of varieties of native trees and shrubs. It is a favorite place for bicycling, walking, running and nature study. Bronx River Parkway Reservation | Westchester  website and more . . .

Click to enlarge photo of the Hudson Highlands The sign reads:
"For much of its 315-mile course, the Hudson River flows straight and broad. But at the Highlands, the Appalachian mountain chain intersects the river to create a fifteen mile stretch of rugged, mountainous landscape. This area contains the river's narrowest and deepest points, as well as its fastest currents. The Hudson River is an estuary, a mixture of salt and freshwater, and the saltwater line extends just north of Beacon. The River is tidal all the way up to the Troy Dam above Albany."
