Finally, after three years, the Henry Hudson Bridge pedestrian walkway has reopened to pedestrians and cyclists! What a great connection! And what great views! Here are some quick cell phone pics I took as I walked my bike across the bridge this afternoon.

Today we noticed that the sign on the southbound (North) end of the bridge says walk bicycles.
the northbound (south) end says bicycle traffic prohibited.
Anybody know what gives?
Yes, on Sunday I noticed the oddly worded signs about bicycles at both ends of the bridge. I recall the south end sign saying “bicycle traffic prohibited” but I don’t recall exactly what the north end sign said, though it was something slightly different. And I don’t think it mentioned walking the bikes. Maybe they changed it.
I just rechecked, Southbound it says “No Bicycle Riding Permitted on Bridge”
Northbound says ” Bicycle Traffic Prohibited”
Ah yes, that’s what I remember. Very weird signs. Why can’t they just have signs along the pedestrian walkway saying “bike riders must dismount”?
Very strange indeed! Made me feel a bit unwanted on my bike. There’s also a sign that says “Wrong way” on the southbound side. Also a sign advising that the taking of photos and videos are strictly prohibited. Who comes up with stuff like that?

I was told that the walkway will be closed again. Can you tell me if that is so and when? I am trying to see where the walking path first enters Inwood Hill. Can you help me with that? Thanks
