You Could Walk From Red Hook to Governor's Island With This Pedestrian Bridge Crowd-Funded Proposal

The Citizen Bridge is a crowdfunded pedestrian bridge proposal from designer Nancy Nowacek that seeks to reclaim a long-lost public walkway in the NYC harbor and reconnect to the water.

The first citizen-built and longest temporary bridge in New York City history, Citizen Bridge is a floating pedestrian bridge to reclaim the city’s waterways as public space. As a 1400-foot span from Brooklyn to Governor’s Island, Citizen Bridge will offer participants an experience of the New York City harbor unlike any other. It is designed to create an intimate experience of being with the water, rather than seeing it from the shore, above from a bridge, or in transport by boat or ferry.

The Citizen Bridge Kickstarter campaign has already raised over $5k of its $25k goal with almost 4 weeks left.
