..taken at the same time and place as this one.. the Highbridge Water Tower, peeking through the treetops..
Not being able to go out and mash that shutter button for quite sometime now had me thinking.. am I running out of ideas or am I running out of things to shoot..
This graceful water tower, located in Manhattanâ€™s Highbridge Park at 174thÂ Street, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.Â It has been a visual landmark on the heights of Manhattan overlooking the Harlem River since 1872. The tower was not part of the original Croton Aqueduct.Â It was added to serve the growing number of residents in the villages of north Manhattan, which were at an elevation higher than the Croton Aqueduct.
Viewing the interior of a tower-like structure such as this for the first time is a thrill! As for the climb.. well that’s a different story.
