About This Image
The Croton Reservoir was a popular ground on Fifth Avenue between 40th and 42nd Street. In 1900, the reservoir underwent a two-year dismantling, to make way for the largest marble structure to be built in the United States - The New York Public Library. Workers at street level, on 42nd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues, are looking at water from the reservoir being redirected underground.
