Elevated Bike Lanes

Manhattan, New York

The New York Magazine requested us an utopian view of what could happen in Manhattan in the next 50 years.

By treating bicycles like cars we dared to poke fun at the bicycle craze. Jokes aside, the project is doable and would present a healthy and safe way to move around in the city.

 

To save pedestrians from the fierce bicycle swarms that run through the city we propose a bycicle highway that will turn the populare "Summer Street" program into a permanent feast for the cyclist.

 

An elevated track, installed high over the Park Avenue green strip, will connect 72nd Street on Central Park all the way down to Governor's Island.

 

CityBikes rental stations will be available along the track at major intersections and will gift the cyclist the joy of continuosus riding without stops in the heart of Manhattan.
