Crossing the Queensboro Bridge by Matt Mawson
Mix 4am driving, high speeds, and the Queensboro Bridge off-ramp, and injury and death ensue.
A scene from Queensboro Plaza:
A Manhattan-bound 7 train has given the “stand clear of the closing doors” warning as a man is walking up the steps. Upon hearing the announcement he starts running and shouts,
“Hey!!” Wait! Wait for me!”
The train does not pull away. He returns to walking, and quietly repeats,
“Wait for Tom.”
I would only like to add that “Koch” is not a good name to put on something in general. Maybe a full name—David H. Koch Theater—but just “Koch Bridge”? ::shudder::
Don’t Take The Tunnel, Take The Koch: The Terrible Renaming Of The Queensboro Bridge. Ed Koch was born in the Bronx, moved to Newark, and spent most of his life in Manhattan. He served three terms as Mayor of New York City. He was a judge on “The People’s Court.” He made a guest appearance on popular soap opera All My Children. He had heart surgery. Yes, Koch has done a lot of things in his long life—and he still does—but he has never had the honor of residing in any part of Queens. But that apparently doesn’t matter, because today a special committee voted 6 to 1 in favor of passing along a resolution to rename the 59th Street Bridge after him. The only person who voted against it was Jimmy Van Bramer, who represents Queens, but it will still go on to the full council vote tomorrow where, the Daily News says, it will be most likely passed.
word. spot on. regardless of what happens with the vote, that’s always going to be the queensboro bridge.
