WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell On The Story
“We’re urging the state to consider turning the old Tappan Zee Bridge into a park,” he told WCBS 880 reporter Peter Haskell on Wednesday.
Feiner envisions it as something of a suburban High Line, and it says it’ll probably be cheaper to preserve it than to knock down the three-mile-long structure.
“I think turning it into a suburban version of the High Line would make the Tappan Zee Bridge a real destination point,” he said.
Feiner sees the park as one that could be used for walking, biking, skateboarding, entertainment, and even a sculpture garden.
He wants state money for a feasibility study.
A meeting was held on the issue on Wednesday night, but no decision has been made.
