There’s a history of bridges between buildings, over streets, in New York. A long history.

The 1989 pedestrian bridge over Trinity Place, a block from our office, ran between the Trinity Church yard and the parish offices at 74 Trinity Place. But 74 Trinity is gone, demolished in the last few months to make way for a bigger building. The bridge remains…
