Category:High Bridge Water Tower
The High Bridge Water Tower, located in Highbridge Park between West 173rd and 174th Streets, was built in 1866-72 to help meet the increasing demands on the city's water system. The 200-foot octagonal tower was designed by John B. Jervis in a mixture of the Romanesque Revival and neo-Grec styles, and was accompanied by a 7-acre reservoir. The High Bridge system was taken out of service in 1949, and the tower's cupola was damaged by an arson fire in 1984. The tower and cupola were rehabilitated and restored in 1989-90.
