Residents and local lawmakers demanded changes at a deadly off-ramp in Queens after two separate accidents in the past two weeks left two people dead.
It has happened again: for the second time in two weeks, a car careened off the road at the Ed Koch Queensboro bridge and smashed into a building.
Police were investigating an early-morning crash in Queens that left one man dead and two people hospitalized Monday.
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn said in a statement that “Ed Koch was the bridge that brought New York City back from the brink of bankruptcy.”
City Councilman Peter Vallone, Jr. says Mayor Bloomberg’s pitch to honor Ed Koch came out of the blue and the Queensboro Bridge is part of the heritage and culture of Queens.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg ignited another firestorm of controversy on Friday over East River tolls. Just when you thought the plan was out of gas the mayor is bringing it back.
The name change requires approval by the City Council.
