100 Cities / 100 Memorials

100c 100m wwi centennial plaque The Highbridge Doughboy once stood at a small park triangle east of the Washington Bridge, in the University Heights or Highbridge section of the Bronx. It was erected to honor the 21 local servicemen who died while serving their country in World War I.  Following many years of damage and vandalism, and in commemoration of the World War I Centennial, the statue was extensively repaired, restored, and relocated to a highly visible site at Macomb’s Dam Park adjacent to Yankee Stadium at Jerome Avenue and 161st Street.
