From the architect. The “walk” from Washington Heights to the Highbridge community takes over an hour. The journey requires two subway lines and excursions along non-pedestrian roads and bridges. History offers a better image of connectivity.

Prior to its closing in 1970, the High Bridge connected the two neighborhoods. The Highbridge station, which was closed in the late 1970s, was a vitalizing force for both neighborhoods by providing city-wide and regional commuter access. The station and bridge closings, along with other major infrastructural intrusions, have effectively isolated the Highbridge community.

This proposal reopens the High Bridge to pedestrian use and programs the bridge with a new station and live/work studios for artists. A continuous cultural streetscape reconnecting the Highbridge community with the social infrastructure of Washington Heights will catalyze a vibrant creative economy benefiting artists and neighborhood residents alike.

Matt, Herman pointed out the correct location because it is incorrectly listed as "Washington, USA" right under where it says "Architects: in situ studio – Matthew Griffith, with Will Lambeth and David Birge." "Washington" is also in the tags for this page but "New York" and "Heights" are not.

Andrew (yes you, author), it is simply not true that the walk between Washington Heights takes over an hour now, or requires subway trains or anything else like you said above. It is quite easy to use the pedestrian path on the Washington Bridge at 181st Street in Manhattan and then walk down. In addition, the Washington Bridge is only seven blocks from the High Bridge, less than half a mile.

I worked with Will Lambeth and David Birge to design this and they produced many of the images shown. Credit is due! This was an equal collaboration between the three of us.

The High Bridge is in Washington Heights, NY. Not Washington.

Correct!
