Second Manhattan Bridge Path Coming Soon

According to New York City Department of Transportation officials, the fully ramped, “bicycle only” path on the east side of the Manhattan Bridge is scheduled to open in July 2004. Brooklyn-side access will be on the northeast corner of Sands and Jay Streets, and Manhattan-side access will be on the southwest corner of Canal and Forsyth Streets.

Over the last two years, the number of bicyclists crossing the Manhattan Bridge has increased from 150 to 600 a day.
