Selling the Brooklyn Bridge

The article suggests that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg should establish a bridge-climb operation at the Brooklyn Bridge just like the one at the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia. Mayor Bloomberg should make a Brooklyn Bridge climb part of his reelection platform. It would win votes, and the inauguration of such a climb would be a great way to start his second term. New Yorkers would probably take to the bridge experience even more than Sydney-riders have.
