Queensboro Bridge Could Be Renamed For Koch
New York - The Queensboro Bridge could soon be in for a name change.
The Bloomberg administration is set to announce plans to rename the span after former Mayor Ed Koch.
The change would have to be approved by the City Council.
The 101-year-old bridge crosses into the area Koch once represented in Congress.
Koch will celebrate his 86th birthday this month.
The Brooklyn Battery Tunnel is also in for a name change.
Yesterday, the State Senate passed a measure already approved by the Assembly to rename the tunnel after former Governor Hugh Carey.
