10 Reasons Why A Pedestrian Bridge To Jersey City Is A Terrible Idea

 

Jersey City resident Kevin Shane recently came up with the idea to build a pedestrian bridge from Jersey City to downtown Manhattan, so commuters don’t have to deal with the PATH trains anymore. In theory, it’s nice. But it’s actually a terrible idea. Here’s why:

 

1. The high rent prices of NYC have already consumed Hoboken. Put in this bridge and they’ll consume Jersey City as well.

2. The Rangers – Devils hockey rivalry might turn into an all out war. Things are at least somewhat under control when water is separating the two armies.

3. NYC might be dirty, but everyone knows New Jersey is dirtier. They’re gonna be tracking their filth into our city.

4. Anyone else worried that someone would fall off of this?

8. It will quickly turn into a tourist attraction, a.k.a. — an obstacle course for commuters who actually need to get places

9. We’re better off spending the tax dollars on fixing the train tunnels, which is looooong overdue
