The work in this exhibition is based on a QR code that links to my petition asking our Governor to actively support a bike/pedestrian lane on the Verrazzano Bridge - as this office comes with the power to make the MTA finally act (an article by Gersh Kuntzman in Streetsblog NYC, Jan. 22, 2021, reveals how the agency is not only passive but actively blocking the realization of a lane: Secret Report Reveals that MTA Has No Interest in Verrazzano Bridge Bike Path).
