NEW YORK (WCBS 880) - If and when a new Tappan Zee Bridge is built, Greenburgh town supervisor Paul Feiner would like to see the old bridge saved.

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.
