Sky River, 2005
A digital rendering of a 190 foot suspension bridge that connects to a fishing platform in the Hudson River in Westchester County is shown. Designed as a low key recreational/educational facility in 2005 to draw residents and tourists to the waters of the Hudson, it features a transparent deck, interactive video displays and summertime wading. A non-profit corporation, Sky River Walk Inc., has been formed to develop and implement the project. The proposal, written with Amie Worley a curator in the Westchester Park system, is available in a printed document.
