GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Greenburgh Daily Voice accepts signed and original letters to the editor up to 350 words. To submit your letter, email greenburgh@dailyvoice.com

Last month the NYS Legislature voted to rename the Tappan Zee bridge after Mario Cuomo. I believe the Legislature should also consider naming the new bikeway/walkway on the bridge for Pete Seeger--the folksinger and environmental activist who worked hard to focus public attention on a cleaner Hudson River. I also would like to suggest that the state consider creating an outdoor environmental museum along the three mile bridge --featuring environmental exhibits that pedestrians and cyclists could benefit from. The outdoor museum could highlight the history of the Hudson River environmental initiatives as well. The walkway that will be built on the Tappan Zee bridge is an exciting innovation that will link Westchester and Rockland Counties. It's guaranteed to become a destination point for tourists from around the world. The outdoor environmental museum could also include a call to action--encouraging people to conserve energy, learn more about solar, geothermal and wind power, teach people about organic food composting, etc..
