Text description provided by the architects. 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.
