ABOUT

Long ago, the center of city life and citizen prosperity was its waterways, and amongst many other forms of access, New Yorkers could move between Brooklyn and Governors Island on a sandbar at low tide. For many reasons, the waterways have shifted to the edges of life. More often today, the waterways are a site to see, a place to look at from a promenade; but as our climate becomes more unpredictable, they are also a source of stress and fear.

Citizen Bridge™ is a temporary bridge to reconnect New Yorkers to their waterways.
