Staten Island’s South Beach Civic Association is planning to host a rally on January 26 to protest the MTA-approved Verrazano Bridge fair hikes.
We know you rarely agree with anything anyone from the other side of the pond has to say, however, in this case, they might be on to something.
The protest takes place at Lily Pond Avenue and Major Avenue, near the entrance to the bridge. Yes, that is the Staten Island side. This means that you would have had to pay the currently exorbitant toll amount in order to cross the bridge so that you may protest against an even higher toll amount. Silly, I know.
However, a Brooklyn-side protest to show our solidarity could work. Hey pols, who’s in?
If you happen to be in Staten Island, or wish to travel there to make your voice heard, the protest starts at 12 p.m. Good luck and keep fighting the good fight.
