Smooth Path to Queens
In September the DOT opened the full time permanent bike and pedestrian path across the Queensboro Bridge. For the first time in 35 years, the path is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The path features the long-awaited asphalt ramps on the Queens side. There remains room for improvement on the Manhattan side, where cyclists and pedestrians are forced to travel to First Ave. rather then the more convenient and expedient Second Ave.
