Under (and Beside) the Bridge of 59th Street

The Queensboro (or 59th Street) Bridge is about to be renamed the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge, after the former New York City mayor. The renaming sounds about as cluncky as the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, née Triboro Bridge. It may be just me, but when you rename timeless icons after a politicians or a company, it takes a little away from its status of timeless. Maybe I should take my case to The People's Court ;) Rant is complete... You can also see the Roosevelt Island Tramway in the background, which was closed for construction at the time of this shot.
