VIRTUAL PREVIEW: RIDGEWOOD RESERVOIR FOR THE 21ST CENTURY

In 1858, the Ridgewood Reservoir was built on the Brooklyn-Queens border to hold the once independent City of Brooklyn’s fresh water supply. Ridgewood Reservoir for the 21st Century traces the 160-year transformation of the site from the construction of its three water basins to its invaluable present-day role as a 50 acre open space in Highland Park. Discover a virtual preview of this Community Partnership exhibition, which will be situated around the historic Watershed Model and will include photographs, maps, historic ephemera, and documentation of the past four years of NYC H2O’s stewardship and advocacy work, which has led to the protection and preservation of the site. 

El embalse Ridgewood se construyó en 1858 en la frontera entre Brooklyn y Queens como suministro de agua dulce de la Ciudad de Brooklyn, que fue independiente en su día. La exposición Ridgewood Reservoir for the 21st Century (“El embalse de Ridgewood para el siglo XXI”) recorre su evolución a lo largo de 160 años, desde la construcción de las tres cuencas hasta su incalculable valor como espacio abierto de más de 20 hectáreas en Highland Park en la actualidad. Disfrute de este avance virtual de esta exposición Community Partnership (asociación comunitaria), que se situará alrededor del histórico Watershed Model (el modelo de la cuenca hidrográfica) e incluirá fotografías, mapas, objetos históricos y documentación reunida durante los últimos cuatro años gracias al trabajo de gestión y defensa de la fundación NYC H2O, que contribuyó a proteger y conservar el paraje.
