If I was a mayor, first thing I would do would be burying that highway

Dig a tunnel and use Brooklyn bridge for bikers and pedestrians only. Quite an expensive job though.

So what you are trying to say is that BB was built along and for highway purposes?

I think what he is trying to say is that that is not a highway, but the entrance/exit to the Brooklyn Bridge. It's not "on the ground" and hence can't just be put underground. A lot of that part is high up in the air. Check it on Google Maps.

Oh come on, don't you know what I mean? It's all about this huge intersection/exit/entrance/whatever you wanna call it with multiple car lanes, snails and stuff. Every centimeter of this extremely beautiful (great neighbouring towers) and valuable space is wasted for dehumanised car wasteland.
Decent urban masterplan and some landscape architects could turn this place into one of the prettiest in NYC.
