Preston Dickinson (1889–1930), High Bridge and High Bridge Water Tower, ca. 1915
Charcoal and black ink on Japanese paper. Promised gift of Elie and Sarah Hirschfeld, Scenes of New York City
Dickinson extols the industrial structures of High Bridge and High Bridge Water Tower, which soar from a low vantage point to heroic heights.
Connecting Manhattan and the Bronx across the Harlem River, High Bridge opened in 1848 as part of an aqueduct that carried fresh water from the Croton River into New York City. It stands now as the oldest bridge in the city.
