Croton Aqueduct Gate House (The Gatehouse Theater)
Croton Aqueduct Gate House (The Gatehouse Theater)
One of the major developments in America during the 19th century was the unprecedented growth of urban centers. The increase in the size of cities placed tremendous pressure on limited municipal resources, none more than, the supply of fresh potable water. In the 17th and 18th centuries most cities had relied on local waterways, springs, and wells for their water supply. The increasing population, however, soon put a strain on these natural resources. Poor sanitary conditions frequently caused sewage to mix with the water supply and in many localities the water became so contaminated that it was undrinkable. In addition, the lack of an adequate supplv of water hindered the work of local fire brigades and led to extensile property loss. For urban grewth to be sustained, a reliable supply of fresh water was required. In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, municipal governments slowly began to take responsibility for the delivery of clean water. The colonial government of New York City first became involved in providing water to the populace in 1774, but it was not until the completion of the Croton Aqueduct in the 1840s that New Yorkers were assured of a safe water supply. As the city grew, the relatively small Croton system oroved inadequate; it was supplemented in 1890 by the New Croton Aqueduct, in the early 20th century the Catskill System, and later by the Delaware River System. The Old and New Croton Aqueducts were two of the premier engineering works of the 19th century, successfully supplying New York with some of the world': finest water. The 135th Street. Gate House, designed in 1884 by Frederick S. Cook, was the major above-ground structure built within the city limits as part of the New Croton Aqueduct. This structure is more than just a utilitarian enclosure for water pipes; it is a bold architectural statement that symbolizes the importance of the Croton Aqueduct to the growth of New York City. 135th Street Gate House The gate house at West 135th Street and Convent Avenue is the most impressive architectural feature of the New Croton Aqueduct located within the city limits. The building was constructed to regulate the amount of water flowing from the masonry aqueduct to pipes leading to the reservoir in Central Park and to localities in Northem Manhattan. Although built for utilitarian purposes, the gate house is a carefully designed structure, erected during a period when buildings for even the most functional purposes were given carefully articulated and expressive treatment. The gate house is located on a raised site in an area that was sparely settled in 1890. For this site architect Frederick S. Cook the assistant engineer of the Draughting Bureau, designed a building with a massiveness that belies its diminutive size. The building looms up like a medieval fortress, an appropriate symbol since, just as a fortress served physically to protect the population of a medieval city, this gate house is the. symbolic protector of New York, for without an adequate supply of pure water, the modern city could not exist. Although small, the gate house contains a complex series of water chambers, sluice gates, stop planks, end stop cocks that originally received and distributed all the water conveyed to Manhattan via both the Old and New Croton Aqueducts. The building is divided into two sections—the main part which receives water from the New Croton Aqueduct, and a lower portion. located to the west,that was originally connected to the Old Croton Systnm. located on an elevated site so that water could easily flew,by force of gravity, to destinations throughout the city without the necessity of constructing pumping stations, the gate house was,in addition,excavated to a depth of 29 feet so that if necessary, the Jerome Park distributing reservoir could be fully drained. The gate house was connected to the new aqueduct tunnel by a well located below the tower at the northeast corner of the building. This well, lined with brick and coped at the floor level by granite stocks twelve inches thick, descends 84 feet front the floor. From the well the water passes to thts main water chamber via two arched passages of granite five feet wide and 28*3" high. Each passage has two sets of grooves fitted with stop-planks that can shut off the flow of water. The main water chamber, 69.5 feet long, fourteen feet wide, and 43.5 feet deep, is the largest space in the structure. To withstand the water pressure, the floors are payed with eighteen inch thick granite blocks laid on a concrete foundation and the walls are faced with two foot thick granite stones laid in regular courses or. a backing of rubble masonry. This chamber serves to hold the water until it is sent on to its final destination. In addition to being fed by the main well, the chamber receives water from the Old Croton Aqueduct. Three sluice gates in the west wall connect trie chamber with the western extension which received water from
