There's a proposal circulating New York City to connect Manhattan to New Jersey via a pedestrian bridge. The idea was conceived by NYC resident Kevin Shane, who partnered with Jersey City's Jeff Jordan Architects to make it a reality. Dubbed the Liberty Bridge, it measures just under a mile, and would offer free Wi-Fi, retail shops and cafes, as well as gardens and benches. Whether it will be built or not is another matter. Shane has started a
website and online petition
with hopes of convincing the mayor.
