Building upon the successful re-opening of the High Bridge and the positive precedent set by the Harlem Stage and its adaptive re-use of the 135th Street Croton Aqueduct Gatehouse, the Waterline team is working with the neighborhoods of Morningside Heights, Harlem, and Northern Manhattan as well as communities in the Bronx, and those surrounding Central Park, to:1.) renew public awareness of this historic infrastructure; 2.) identify new public and community uses for the Aqueduct’s underutilized structures and spaces; and, 3.) develop a strategic plan for a new public promenade – the “Waterline” – that traces the linear route of the Old Croton Aqueduct from the High Bridge to Central Park’s Onassis Reservoir. The Waterline will create a new central spine of cultural activity, economic development, and community connectivity, once again making the Old Croton Aqueduct a catalyst for New York's future.
