Advocates Press for Bike/Pedestrian Path on NYC’s Verrazano Bridge


Streetsblog NYC wrote an article highlighting the need for a bike and pedestrian path over the Verrazano Bridge. Street Plans Principal Mike Lydon is one of the leaders of the Harbor Ring Committee, an advocacy group campaigning to connect a 50-mile bike route around the New York Harbor. The Verrazano Bridge is a huge gap in the proposed loop. Advocates last Saturday lined up to put their bikes on the very limited bike racks on the S53 buses that cross the bridge, making a statement that cyclists need a safe, separated path across.
