Walking Tours of the Old Croton Aqueduct
Co-sponsored with The Friends of the Old Croton Aqueduct
The aqueduct is a 41-mile brick-lined conduit constructed between 1837 and 1842 to bring fresh water from the Croton River to New York City; one of the great engineering achievements of the 19th century! Call Mavis Cain for more information, 914-693-0529.
