You can use a pedestrian bridge to walk across a street, highway, or body of water.

The City Agency that maintains what the bridge crosses is usually responsible for the bridge itself.

  • The Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) manages all of the bridges leading to a park or within a park.
  • The Department of Transportation (DOT) maintains most of the pedestrian bridges that cross a street, highway, or water within New York City.
