Nice bi level bridge over the East River. One of my favorites because there are no tolls. Now the Ed Koch Bridge named after the former NYC Mayor. Named after a very nice man.

I love the Queensboro Bridge, also known as the 59th Street Bridge or the Ed Koch Bridge. The three names may be confusing to some, but New Yorkers just know the names are interchangeable. I also love seeing the Bridge when it is used for...More

The Queensboro Bridge is a great crossing into Manhattan. It is fast moving at off peak times and there is no toll. It has recently been named after former Mayor Ed Koch.

We got a wonderful close-up view of Queensboro Bridge whilst crossing over to Roosevelt Island by tram. The bridge connects Manhattan with Long Island City passing over Roosevelt Island. It is a double-decked Cantilever Bridge which was completed in 1909, and crosses the East River....More

I've seen this bridge from the cable car going to Roosvelt Island. I really recommend this point of view. The trip in the cable car is included in the metrocard and the view is breathtaking!

Love the architecture of this bridge & it's the 59th Street bridge as mentioned in the old '60's song. Lovely to see day or night.
