Transit Proposal Would Link Long Island City to Hoboken With 2 Massive Suspension Bridges Over Manhattan

A crazy new transit proposal would link Long Island City to Hoboken with two massive suspension bridges high above Midtown Manhattan, crossing just south of Bryant Park.

In a proposal that harkens back to Robert Moses‘ Lower Manhattan Expressway (LOMEX), a Delaware traffic consultant has proposed twin suspension bridges that would stretch from New Jersey, over Manhattan, into Queens, crossing along both 38th and 39th Streets. Scott R. Spencer, who has termed his project the Empire State Gateway, sees this proposal as a faster fix than the Gateway Tunnel.

Check out the full article for more details on the proposal.
