It's Getting Crowded in Hipsterville

am New York: Each day, some 10,000 pedestrians and 3,500 cyclists cross under the bridge’s famous limestone and granite towers — a steep increase compared to recent years. Weekend walkers along the span grew by 275%, when comparing volumes from May 2015 to May 2008. During the same time period, 93% more bikers used the bridge in the evening rush hour, according to the city DOT.

As anyone who has walked across it (as I have, many times) could tell you, the paths are too narrow to accommodate all the tourists and the reckless bike riders who refuse to walk their bikes across but instead ride at dangerously high speeds, given the crowds.
