Nice looking bridge

This is an attractive bridge. It was cool to see this at sunset from the Roosevelt Island Aerial Tram.

We went Roosevelt Island on the Tramway. I didn't realize we was just close to QB bridge. I was a sight to see.

Connecting midtown-upper east side to Queens. The bike and pedestrian path offers great views north. The upper east side, Roosevelt island and its tram are nice to see from up here. Practically no tourists.

The Tennis Bubble takes up an acre of space and is currently rented to the Sutton East Tennis Club which charges tennis players $80 to $225 per hour. The lease runs out in the summer, and a number of us are working with the City to find different uses. There are very limited open spaces on this side of the... More

We crossed the bridge on the way back from Larchmont New York where we had dinner. The view were very good but the roads needed some repairs.

In my goal to walk across every Bridge over the East River, the Queensboro was my goal for today. Nice wide walkways coming from Queens into Manhattan gives nice views north, but anything to the south is hard to see. Nice structure and easy walk. Unlike the other bridges, this one crosses over an island (Roosevelt Island) allowing a unique... More

Name change by the former Mayor Bloomberg trying to make his buddies feel good, the 59th street bridge as New Yorker's call it is now the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge after former Mayor Ed Koch. Its a split level bridge beautiful from afar but when you get up close you can feel its age. It is famous for part of... More

We crossed over on the Queensboro Bridge on the way to Mid-Town from La Guardia and it was an awesome site. The traffic was light and moving well. We got a wonderful view of Manhattan.

We decided to conduct our own tour of New York dubbed the "Person of Interest" tour. Stop 2 on the tour was the Queensboro Bridge where Finch, Reese, Root, and Shaw meet. Actually there are several meetings at this location. To match the view you must go to Queensbridge park. The park itself is nothing special but for this exceptional... More

I crossed the Queensboro Brigde by bike on a recent trip to NYC. It was not a pleasant experience. It's very industrial, the bike lane is narrow, and the noise from the traffic is imense. It provides some good views but it's not a very tourist friendly crossing. If you need to cross the river by bike I recommend using... More
