Runners and cyclists, commuters and tourists, Staten Islanders and Brooklynites…No matter who you are, you’ve made it clear: you want to be able to walk and ride over the Verrazano Bridge!  Hundreds of the Harbor Ring’s supporters have commented on our petition for a multi-use path on the bridge:

vnb pre-ride“This is important to me because public transportation off and on Staten Island is limited. I have wondered for a long time why there isn’t already a pedestrian path across the bridge, since most NYC bridges do allow pedestrians. This would certainly make travel to Brooklyn much easier especially when money is tight.” -Vincent, Staten Island

Alternate access to parks and historic sites in Staten Island besides the roundabout way using the crowded ferry that has a limited schedule.”  -Emily, Brooklyn

“I live in Staten Island and it would be way more convenient for me to bike across the bridge to buy food or visit friends and family members.” -David H. Staten Island

“As a native of SI and now a Bay Ridge resident who is carless, this would be a life saver for getting back home, without spending the 1.5+ hour bus trip.”  -Andrea, Brooklyn

“I just attempted to walk all five boroughs yesterday, only to find out that pedestrians are not allowed on the Verrazano Bridge! What a disappointment after 25 grueling miles! Please finish the bridge. Thank you!”  -Jason, Liverpool, NY

“For increased happiness and a transportation opportunity that is cheaper and an exercise-induced, healthier option to get to my work on Staten Island. I think it also would allow for increased economic opportunities as well.”  -Megan, Brooklyn
