|Who wouldn't want to ride on this?|
Anyone familiar with riding the subways in New York City knows how overcrowded they can be, especially during the morning and evening commutes. But now a new green solution is taking the rush hours to the air in what’s being called the East River Skyway. According to planners, the high-speed gondola would connect Brooklyn with Manhattan’s Lower East Side and be capable of transporting up to 5,000 people, per hour, both ways. It would also be a great way for tourists to get a sky-view of the Big Apple both during the day and at night when it’s electrified and illuminated. Future plans call for all the boroughs to be connected.
Says the Vox: The Skyway would be a safe, cheap, quick, and fun way to get around Gotham. This is a win/win for NYC...
