Daniel Levy, the president of New York-focused real estate search engine City Realty, wants the Big Apple to build a multi-million dollar, high-speed gondola that would connect various points in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens.
Each phase would cost between $75 million and $125 million, according to the proposal.

Levy estimates the gondola would transport 5,000 people per hour in both directions and says it could move commuters from Brooklyn to Manhattan in less than four minutes. He also claims the gondola would be safer than buses and trains, as well as more environmentally friendly, according to the HuffPo report.
