Gallery | Plans for New York floating bridge

Images have been released of proposals for New York’s first floating wood bridge. 

Plans for the LongPoint corridor and timber bridge, drawn up by architect Creme Design, would connect the neighbourhoods of Long Island City, Queens, and Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

The project includes the renovation of the street at Manhattan Landing, a timber bridge across Newtown Creek, waterfront restoration and expansion on both sides of the bridge.

Proposals say it would incorporate pedestrian routes, a separate bike lane and easier access to public transport, and cut journey times across the creek from 12 minutes to two minutes. 

The Brooklyn-based architect is fundraising for a feasibility study for the project through Kickstarter.
