Assemblywoman Latoya Joyner's Statement Regarding the Reopening of the High Bridge

"I am happy to welcome back the High Bridge, New York City’s oldest standing bridge, to its rightful spot as one of New York's major attractions. For Bronx families and residents in my district, and those who call upper Manhattan home, the High Bridge will once again become an essential part of their lives after having been closed more than 40 years. I commend the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation and New York City Department of Design and Construction, as well as all my colleagues, for their hard work. They have revitalized this vital bridge, restoring an essential pedestrian and cycling thoroughfare that connects the Bronx and Manhattan."
