New Foot Bridge to Roosevelt Island Considered

Momentum is gaining among community and political leaders to build a new footbridge to Roosevelt Island. The only problem is the bridge under consideration is NOT to Franklin Delano Roosevelt Island, here in NYC, but to Theodore Roosevelt Island which sits in the Potomac River. And they say nothing can get done inside the beltway.

For those interested the full story can be found HERE on the GW Hatchet.

Meanwhile back here in Gotham it has been a year since Community Board 8 passed a resolution for the NYC DOT to study whether access can be afforded to NYC Roosevelt Island residents to the existing 59th Street / Queensboro Bridge and as far as we know DOT has never responded to CB8. Furthermore it is unclear whether CB8 has ever followed up with DOT regarding the resolution.
