Well this would be a way for me to hopefully cover the Wittpenn Bridge if it is open then.
It's scheduled to open October 1, so it looks like this will work out.

Yes, I saw that on Travel Mapping, and I am fine with walk-clinching NJ 7 if I have to.  Walk clinching has happened a bit for me over the years (south end of MD 25 and MD 45 Bypass (Towson) are examples), and they help me get steps on those days that I otherwise would not have gotten.

I was there yesterday, and it's not walkable.  The bridge has been completely removed, and you can't cross the river at that point, where by car or on foot.

I honestly doubt that this will be an issue considering that it is technically a holiday weekend anyway.

Darn.  I'll have to find some way of sight clinching the area.  The east side is easy enough to just loop around the parking lot for the Stop & Shop plaza, but the west side is more challenging.  Driving down the open part and turning around would seem obvious, but there really isn't a good place to do so (the industrial area is even posted "do not enter/no U turn").  The best bet would seem to be parking in the neighborhood to the south and walking around, but I'm not sure how odd that would look to the residents (although there seems to be a historic building, so maybe not too much?).

(assuming you're talking about the Kingsland Street/NJ 7 bridge even though it's not mentioned in the quote strings)

Well it looks like I will be doing a Laura in Cleveland and driving a rental car to this one.  On my way back from Cooperstown last night (clinching PA 191 of course), I hit truck tire debris on I-78 (around Exit 19) that caused some cosmetic damage on the bottom of my car.  Thankfully that seems to be the only issue, but I am certainly not comfortable with driving it into NYC with this even minor issue.

I hit a deer a couple of years ago that totally messed up the right front plastic panel of my vehicle, but did not impact it mechanically in any way. It didn't stop me from taking a rather lengthy trip to OH, WV, PA, VA, TN, and NC.

Yeah, it definitely seems fine mechanically.  I was already considering a rental just because of driving significant mileage on NYC streets instead of just freeways (and to save some mileage after my recent Arizona trip).
