A few of us Unatics decided to take up Bob Hickman of Unicycle Bridge Tour's on his invitation to the Highbridge Festival at Highbridge Park. It was an opportunity for us to traverse one of the oldest pedestrian bridges in the country. It is the oldest bridge in New York. The HighBridge had just recently been reopened to pedestrians after being closed for more than 40 years. It has undergone a tremendous $61 million renovation by the New York City Parks department. The renovation was worth every penny. The work they did on the 125 foot high bridge is incredible. The bridge that is a pleasure to travel upon. There are places to sit and enjoy the views of the water and the skyline of Manhattan. Without having to compete with motorized vehicles. People can leisurely walk or ride between the island of Manhattan and the only borough that is actually on the main land of the United States, The Bronx. We had a great time hanging out at the festival, riding back and forth multiples times across the bridge.
