High Bridge

The High Bridge, New York City's oldest standing bridge, spans the Harlem River at 173rd Street in Manhattan. It officially closed sometime during the early 1970s -- the Parks Department, mysteriously, isn't certain of the exact date -- but remained open for ranger tours until the late 1990s, when the gates were shut to all but Parks employees after engineers discovered structural flaws.
