Skyway could ease commuter crunch | Real Estate Weekly
A proposed East River Skyway could ease commuter congestion between Manhattan and the booming Brooklyn market. The first phase of the Skyway would connect the waterfront area in Williamsburg to Downtown Manhattan, South Williamsburg and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. “Given the exciting growth in Brooklyn and Queens, it is essential to adapt New York City’s transportation system to serve residents in these booming areas,” said Daniel Levy, president of East River Skyway and CityRealty. Levy unveiled his proposal yesterday (Tuesday) at the Massey Knakal Brooklyn Real Estate Summit.
