I Will Always Call it the 59th Street Bridge

Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel who are Queens natives did an excellent job writing and performing the 59th Street Bridge Song. I will always call it the 59th Street Bridge, not the Queensboro Bridge nor the Ed Koch Bridge. The former mayor deserves to be honored by having a major building named for him. I agree with Councilman Peter Vallone who suggested that Gracie Mansion be renamed for Ed Koch. However, the City Council overwhelmingly voted to name it the Ed Koch - Queensboro Bridge.
