Fun in the Sun: Belvederes/Viewing Areas
Sunglasses? Check. Hat? Check. Tanning lotion? Maybe. Cool temps, sunny day, nice breeze . . . perfect weather for a stroll on the new bridge.
I’d appreciate if each of the six belvederes/viewing areas had a back and at least one side; a gentle breeze in the street might be a stronger gust on the bridge.
And protection from sun glare and wind would be helpful when reading the cultural information to be posted at each area.
One person in the Westchester audience asked Brian Conybeare and the panel of project officials if they’d ever walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s a fun trek with spectacular views that I’ve walked at dusk.
While we each have our own heat and sun tolerance levels, I hope those who are incorporating safety for motorists on the new bridge also consider those who will enjoy it via the shared use path.
I’d like to know what you think.
