As Others See Us: Tappan Zee Bridge Storefront For Sale

StreetsBlog is running a caption contest for one of the empty storefronts in Nyack. Like many small businesses with a “For Sale” sign in the window, this shuttered storefront started with high hopes and ended with broken dreams.

The Tappan Zee Bridge I-287 Environmental Review space has been closed for some time. It was part of a community outreach program for the now deprecated original 30 mile project, which had covered a 30 mile corridor with both road improvements and mass transit components. A bridge-only effort, called the Tappan Zee Hudson River Crossing Project, was substituted for the original plan last October.

Some of the caption nominations include:

  • Tappan Zee Outreach Gone Fishin’
  • The Andrew Cuomo Office of Transparency and Sustainability (Closed)
  • “We are preparing for the $30 tolls by moving offices to the other side of the bridge”
  • “Like a (troubled) bridge over troubled waters…”
  • Public office for rent
  • “Never underestimate the power of a shiny dangling object”.
  • Coming soon: Casino!

Have a nomination? Share it here or at
