Great news for me and those who participated in my twelve years as mayor... Mayor Michael Bloomberg has proposed to the City Council that the Queensboro Bridge be renamed the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge. I never expected it.
I'm very honored and privileged. The 59th Street Bridge has no extraordinary sight lines. It doesn't touch the sky, like the George Washington or Verrazano bridges. It's a workhorse bridge. Just like me!
