I had such hope. A year of construction on the non-bike path going over the formerly Triborough now RFK Bridge. I thought they were taking out the steps. But no. It's still not done. But the new staircase is there. Why couldn't they just have ramped it out?
Because they don't care.
Oh, and yeah, it's not just bike riding that is technically prohibited on the bike path over the bridge. It's "bike riders." So don't even think of going there.
