Should Albany agree to toll the East and Harlem River bridges — still a big "if" — ownership of those crossings may transfer from the city to the MTA, as would control of bike and pedestrian access. How do you feel about the MTA controlling the path on your bridge? The narrow, stairway-interrupted Triborough path and the currently off-limits Henry Hudson path are not the most encouraging examples.
