Ribbon cutting at the High Bridge

August 27, 2008

We haven’t taken the summer off: we have been pretty busy doing indoor (meetings, letter writing and calling) and outdoor (blazing and scouting) work. On August 26, 2008, Bob, Elizabeth and Jeanine were part of a lively crowd joining Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Parks Commissioner Adrean Benepe at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new High Bridge Access Trail in Manhattan.

The High Bridge was open for this event and we walked over the bridge to the Bronx side and walked back. It was a glorious day.

Just in case you need some help with the geography, the High Bridge spans the Harlem River from Manhattan on the west to [the] Bronx on east.

The parks on both sides are beautiful and well-maintained. When the High Bridge restoration is complete, scheduled for 2012, we will move the Trail Head to Manhattan.
