Croton Dam is one the true gems to visit in Westchester County, NY. It has a public park as well as serving NY City with part of their water supply system. We captured some incredible aerial views in this video and Paul Macey (Croton Dam Facebook Administrator) fills us in on some Dam facts about the past, present and future of Croton Dam.

    My family and I visited the Croton Dam back in 1989 before we moved to sunny dry Southern California. I was impressed with the engineering and realized I wouldn't be seeing such a large flow of pure water for a long time. Very nice video.

    Great video. I ride across it pretty regularly. Maybe you can enlighten me. How is it they did all that work to the area, gave it a new name "New Croton Dam" yet they can't finish paving the top where people walk and ride? and now risk snapping an ankle because it's so torn up. Forget about if you have someone in a wheel chair. Not to mention 129 leading to the park. It's unbelievable how bad that road is. There must be a reason why it's not being touched. Thoughts?
