Do you think a pedestrian bridge between Jersey City and NYC is a good idea?
Would you want to walk to Manhattan if you worked there? Or just take a stroll or bike ride over to Battery Park?
A Jersey City resident has high hopes for just that concept.
Kevin Shane dreamed up the concept of a pedestrian bridge linking the Sixth Street Embankment in Downtown Jersey City and Lower Manhattan.
Shane was so into the idea that he got together with architect Jeff Jordan to create renderings depicting what they dub the Liberty Bridge.
The bridge would span 5,000 feet and rise 200 feet above the Hudson River. In addition to pedestrians, it would also be open to cyclists.
Shane has created an online petition calling for Mayor Steve Fulop, Gov. Chris Christie and Gov. Andrew Cuomo to back their proposal.
Fulop said he would "love to see it" happen, but said he didn't think it was "anything more than a dream right now."
Do you think a pedestrian bridge would be something you would use and like to see in the future?
