Resisting the Koch Bridge

Tuesday, February 15, 2011 - 06:52 PM

City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. takes to Facebook:

"They took the Triboro, now they're coming for the Queensboro. I was the only elected I know of to oppose the triboro re-naming, and I oppose this too. They would never think of re-naming the Brooklyn Bridge, and Queens should get the same respect. Ed Koch is deserving of an honor like this, so let's re-name Gracie [Mansion], or some other suitable landmark, for him."
