The Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge, opened in 1909, is a five span cantilever truss; the only one of the four great East River Bridges that is not a suspension bridge. The bridge was designated as a national landmark on November 23, 1973.
Bridge repeats!!! Training for marathon 2015! NYC
Super cool bridge
No toll bridge to my house! And I love the running path! Great hill!
Nice views of LIC, Roosevelt Island & the East side of Manhattan
The Q32 & Q60 go through here from Queens to Manhattan & vice versa
Also known as the 59th St bridge
There's a single outer driving lane on the south side of the bridge, with East River views unobstructed by the bridge's truss structure. Enter eastbound at 59th St and 1st Av.
Lower level outer road now closed after 9pm. 😢
This double-decker pathway (also known as the 59th Street Bridge) is a popular biking and running loop for athletes based on either side of the East River.
Give it up for Karen's Horney Clinic!
It's a nice peaceful walk.
Terrible day to drive in manhattan
Use the lower ramp it is very busy on top
If you're on 4sq here it's a bummer. Sorry.
Our preferred way to get in and out of Manhattan to Queens, especially by bike!
Traffic is the worst. Mutha fuckers dat cross this shit need o learn to stay in there lane and jus drive. And it can all go smooth.
Early morning traffic and after work travel fastest way - ride between cars - drivers will move
Originally named the Blackwell’s Island Bridge, the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge opened to traffic in 1909 and is the longest of the East River Bridges.
I'm not big on historic structures being renamed, but this renaming was very appropriate... Rest In Peace Mr. New York
Try to avoid it....
Take the outer lower level you don't have to worry about traffic or take the upper level so you can jump off norther blvd faster
Gray day, gray nabe, one of the brutest corners of queens.
Ed Koch's spirit will live on at City Hall, on the bridge that bears his name, and all across the five boroughs: http://bit.ly/Xc6Uxd
I remember Ed Koch from the Style Wars graffiti documentary. What a dumb fuck :/
There are new protected bicycle lanes in Queens Plaza – try them out and see what you think!
It gets wet in the rain...
The Queensboro Bridge plays a central role in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises as the last remaining route to escape Gotham and the fate that Bane has in store for it.
If you are not in a hurry,bus is good
My cousin witnessed someone jumping off this bridge about a year ago.
Going to Queens? It's the cheapest way!
Avoid the upper roadway when driving a scooter. The road is all ridged metal grates. Death!
Make NYC Your Gym on your lunch hour by visiting the Queensboro Bridge! Take a brisk 0.7 mi walk for some mid-day physical activity. More on Making NYC Your Gym: http://on.nyc.gov/T6Gc9J
Don't jump! It's a long ways down.
Take the upper road and check out the Traffic cop! She's very entertaining !
This bridge should not be named after Ed Koch.
At 4pm on weekdays this bridge is murder
This bridge is hit or miss, but hey.. It's free. Always the lower level
Jump! No one will miss you!
It's ok to jump! Just make sure there isn't anyone under you
Who the hell is Ed Koch?! Ummm this will be the queensboro bridge forever.
The Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge, also known as the 59th Street Bridge is a cantilever bridge over the East River that was completed in 1909.
aka the 59th Street Bridge
upper road least traffic and amazing view to the city
Don't look down.
Queensboro Bridge, assholes. Fuck Ed Koch.
best place when raining.
You can only walk over the north side of the bridge. Gives you a good view of the tram and Roosevelt Island, but not so much of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Been crossing for years though...always nice.
