Imagine this: Traveling among Governors Island, lower Manhattan and Brooklyn in an apple-shaped gondola that offered spectacular 360-degree views of the city and New York Harbor.

The sky tramway - akin to those used at ski resorts - could be part of a dynamic new plan to redevelop Governors Island, Mayor Bloomberg said yesterday.

City and state officials made a public appeal for visionary proposals to preserve and redevelop the 172-acre island, located a half-mile from Battery Park in the harbor. The proposals are due May 10.
