A bridge from G’point to Manhattan? A wind turbine at Newtown Creek?

One Greenpoint resident wants a pedestrian and bicycle bridge connecting Greenpoint to Manhattan. But what will drivers say?

The state has $19.5 million to spend cleaning up Greenpoint — and that money could turn your far out environmental idea into an eco-friendly reality.

Exxon Mobil settled with the state in November 2010 for letting more than 17 million gallons of oil seep under Greenpoint for over a century.

Over the next year, environmental experts will determine how to spend that clean-up cash, but they need your help coming up with possible projects.

Some North Brooklynites have already shared their proposals at a public workshop last Wednesday, and we’ve complied a few of the most creative suggestions.
