Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge

In December 2010, the city announced that Queensboro Bridge would be renamed in honor of former Mayor Ed Koch. The Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge, also known as the 59th Street Bridge – because its Manhattan end is located between 59th and 60th Streets – or simply the Queensboro Bridge, is a cantilever bridge over the East River. It was completed in 1909. It connects the neighborhood of Long Island City, Queens with Manhattan, passing over Roosevelt Island where I made the images above.
