Reimagining the Brooklyn Bridge

A design contest to reimagine the Brooklyn Bridge has published their finalists, many of which share a vision of phasing out car lanes, prioritizing public transit, and restoring the original pedestrian promenades.

The contest is no guarantee any of these projects will actually be built, but with New York finally making real progress to open up streets to more than just private vehicles, maybe the idea of turning the Brooklyn Bridge into a second High Line might not actually be such a wild idea.
