Campaign Highlights

Walk/Run the Bridges

#Bridges4People supporters crossed all three of the bridges that connect Manhattan and Brooklyn on foot to show Mayor de Blasio that our East River bridges should prioritize people over cars.

Bridges 2 Food Challenge

Based on TA's 5 Boro Pizza Challenge but mindful of social distancing, we headed to five food establishments near the bridges to enjoy great food, explore the neighborhoods, and send a message to de Blasio that we need more space for pedestrians and cyclists on our bridges.

Campaign Launch Rally!

Our campaign kicked off with a launch rally at the parklet near the Brooklyn-side bike entrance to the Manhattan Bridge! A variety of speakers discussed why we need #Bridges4People.
