Washington Heights near the High Bridge deserves more attention, especially now that the gleaming bridge beckons day-trippers once more. Let’s start by walking into The Bronx across the Harlem River, via the High Bridge. You will hear the tale of the Old Croton Aqueduct, then wind back to the gorgeous Jumel Terrace Historic District, Uptown Trinity Cemetery (resting place of Ed Koch and John James Audubon), and to hidden Audubon Terrace. Along the way we pay homage to Paul Robeson, jazz greats like Lena Horne, the indomitable Eliza Jumel, and to NY baseball. Be prepared for many stairs and up to 4 hours of hilly walking (4+ miles). Bring snacks and drinks. Meet at Highbridge Recreation Center, Amsterdam Ave. at 173 Street in Manhattan, a short walk from #1(181 St.) and A (175 St.) subways. Parking lot at 554 W 174 St, or street park. Heavy rain cancels. Inquiries: text only to Lesley Walter, (914) 671-7112.
