Video Tour of The Bronx's New Car-Free Randalls Island Connector

Earlier this week we told you about the Randall’s Island Connector finally opening to the public and providing safe and direct access between Manhattan and the Bronx.

In this video from Streetfilms, editor Clarence Eckerson Jr. went on out to see what it was like.

Earlier this year, the Highbridge re-opened between The Bronx and Manhattan, the first car-free crossing between the two boroughs. And now incredibly The Bronx has its second in a year with the vital greenway link of Randall’s Island Connector. This project has been in the pipeline for what seems forever, but the nonetheless it is finished and open to the delight of many South Bronx residents who have a direct and easy connection to Randall’s Island and all of its athletic fields, picnic tables, miles of beautiful greenways and unmatched views of the Manhattan skyline!
