New York City’s current infrastructure will not be enough to answer the socio-environmental challenges of this century. For a city that boasts an extensive, and heavily utilized, public transportation network, New Yorkers are surprised year after year that commuting times seem to hover the mark above 38-minutes. A closer look reveals a systemic inefficiency and overall misuse of the existing types of public transportation in place: the dialogue between commuters and public transportation relies heavily on the Subway as the primary method of transport, and criminally underutilizes other forms of transport. Cycle NYC is an urban infrastructure proposal that seeks to reinvent New York as a bicycle friendly city of the 21st century.
Büro Ehring reimagines New York’s most traffic-ridden thoroughfares with this unique infrastructure that upgrades biking opportunities in the city. This elevated pedestrian bridge intends to increase interborough connectivity and includes the use of sustainable materials and existing infrastructure and tracks to provide a greener network that influences growth in New York.
