    • Come on, Yanky. We had such fun time together hopscotching down the bridge yesterday. Don’t be such a sourpuss just because I beat you to the end.

  1. Yes it s wonderful what a beautiful addition to the lake!
    I do think it is unfortunate they had to ruin the aesthetic with the orange fence.

  2. Teenagers utilizing the benches to lie down and interact in ways that I’m not comfortable with my children see takes away from it tremendously. I would like to see them put dividers on the benches so they can only be used to sit, not lie down, as other towns do.

    Also fishing from the main walkway creates a situation where swinging rods and hooks come dangerously close to pedestrians walking on the bridge. Restricting fishing to type square sections off the main walkway would be a big help.

    Otherwise great bridge with beautiful scenic views!

  3. It is amazing!!!!!! However, we have to 1) replace the orange rope with something nicer 2) have a cop walk it at night 3) install cameras at both ends (off for Shabbos) 4) better walkway access from North Lake side

    • A specially trained cop from Lakewood’s finest should walk it up and down every night, one hour shift apiece. Right foot first, legs straight, roll from heel to toe. Uniform ironed and boots polished. Elaborate changing of the guard on the hour.

  4. Cameras can be left of for Shabbos; It’s not different than any other place which has cameras unless you are the one specifically activating them.

  5. There should be a horse mounted Lakewood Police officer with eagle eyes, cat like reflexes, deer like agility, dolphin like social skills, elephant like strength, cheetah like speed, tortoise like endurance, polar bear like tolerance for cold, & camel like tolerance for heat stationed at the bridge. If he sees an issue he will gallop down the bridge warning:
    “Cholov Stam, Cholov Stam”
    Or
    “Shmiras Enayim, Shmiras Enayim”
    Or
    “Tsnius, Tsnius”
    Or
    “Last Zman for Mincha, Last Zman for Mincha”
    He will go down in history as Lakewood’s very own “Paul Revere”

  6. My kids really enjoyed it yesterday but honestly I don’t want to know what it’ll take for the township to make it safer r”l. The orange plastic around it comes off easily and kids can climb up or slip right down under.

  7. The bridge is absolutely beautiful!! There needs to be a sign on both entries detailing rules and fines. No loud music. No smoking. No Loitering. No fireworks. Etc.

    • I’m ok with “Loitering” being illegal as long as “Dilly-dallying” “Sauntering” “Shuffling” “Lollygagging” “Moseying” “Dawdling” “Lounging” “Milling”
      “Ambling” “Meandering ” “Straggling ” & “Tarrying” remain legal.

  8. Yes! What an amazing experience!!

    We drove over it yesterday and were quite surprised that we had very little traffic

    I would only ask if the township can paint solid white lines so that the North and South drivers don’t collide.

    Thank You!

  9. The Kush Bidge! ah very geshmak to sit here and ‘handel’ with my chavrusa late at night until we find real pshat in the sugya!
