It’s now called the Ed Koch Bridge, it’s also the Queensboro bridge but I’ll always think of it as the 59th Street Bridge. Feeling Groovy? Roosevelt Island is directly below the bridge between where I stand in Long Island City and Manhattan on the other side. All of the buildings below the bridge on Roosevelt Island have been demolished from the bridge to the left edge of the photo. A new University will soon be built there. Therefore, this view will be very different in just a few years.
