The city's oldest bridge just opened again last summer after being closed off to the public for decades and this is the first spring in recent memory that pedestrians can see the local foliage in their early season glory.   All of the trees are brilliant greet now and are not so dense which makes it easier to view the actual High Bridge structure on either ends of the park just north of 172nd Street which connects the Heights to the Bronx.  There is also an easier entrance at 165th Street by the basketball courts off of Amsterdam Avenue for those who want to avoid the steep steps further up which is probably more ideal for those with bicycles.  This historic gem is still one of New York's forgotten wonders so make sure to drop by when the weather is clear out.  More on the High Bridge can be found in our past post: LINK
