The New Croton Dam (also known as Cornell Dam), part of the New York City water supply system, stretches across the Croton River near Croton-on-Hudson, New York. Located about 50 minutes from our store, Croton Dam makes a great day trip or picnic destination . Construction began in 1892 and was completed in 1906. The masonry dam is 266 feet  broad at its base and 297 feet high from base to crest. At the time of its completion, it was the tallest dam in the world. New Croton Dam impounds up to 19 billion gallons of water. The dam has an unusual spillway, part artificial and part natural, which forms a waterfall on the north side of the structure.
