Stunning photos of the High Bridge after a 45-year closure

Grab a pre-made picnic basket and hop on your bicycles, because your new summer hangout is on the High Bridge.

Yesterday, NYC’s oldest standing bridge—connecting the Bronx to Manhattan—reopened after a 45-year closure (a $61.8 million project). It’s over 2,000 feet in length, 140-feet high and just darn beautiful—if not more beautiful than ever. Just look at all the Insta-proof below.
