Good thread. I walked over the Brooklyn Bridge, and underneath the Manhattan Bridge on the Brooklyn side briefly when I was in NY. I can't wait until I get my head above water financially enough to justify going back. There is no darn way in the world that you can properly see even a fraction of New York in three days. I have a bit of a fantasy about one day living there, though I don't know if that will ever actually happen.

Though I'm not from New York, but I do often think about how we drive over our bridges carelessly, almost oblivious of the fact that they are engineering marvels and nearly forgetting that we would in many cases be entirely stuck on one side of the water without them.

Tacoma has the twin Narrows Bridges. Travel by car between the center of town and Gig Harbor only takes five or ten minutes. It would take hours if those bridges weren't there. Heck, not that long ago it was scientifically impossible to cross the Mississippi.

^ Good points. Together with the subways, the bridges of New York are the glue that ties the city together.

A Tired Old Bridge Gets a New Look. No, Four of Them.

Kosciuszko Bridge design option No. 1: a cable-stayed bridge.


Kosciuszko Bridge option No. 2: through-arch design


Bridge option 3: box girder design.


Kosciuszko Bridge option 4: the deck arch.


Not an option: the existing Kosciuszko Bridge.

The headline is misleading, because the City got a replacement bridge earlier this year...

New York Gets Its First 21st Century Bridge



By Matt Chaban
October 11, 2010

Quote:
Ever since the collapse of the I-35 bridge in Minneapolis, cities across the country have been warily reevaluating their roadway infrastructure. In New York, some of our bridges earned failing grades. The Brooklyn Bridge was among them and is currently being repaired. Others are in better shape, but not by much. Among them is the Kosciuzko Bridge, which carries the Brooklyn Queens Expressway over Newtown Creek from one borough to the other.

Last week, the state Department of Transportation announced it had selected a new bridge to replace the old Kosciuzko. The steel truss span is one of the steepest bridges in the city and carries 160,000 drivers per day. Last fall, the state unveiled three designs for the new bridge, including standard concrete deck arch and through arch proposals as well as a more modern cable-stayed model.

As a sign of New Yorkers' growing design savvy, the latter won out, with almost half the public voting for it. Construction is expected to begin on the new $1 billion bridge later this year, with a completion date set for 2017.

In City, a Bridge for Koch and a Tunnel for Carey

By MICHAEL M. GRYNBAUM and THOMAS KAPLAN
December 8, 2010

Quote:
Get ready to take the Koch Bridge to the Carey Tunnel.

The Bloomberg administration is set to announce plans on Wednesday to rename the Queensboro Bridge, the Midtown muse of Simon and Garfunkel and a steel signature of the city’s skyline, after former Mayor Edward I. Koch, who turns 86 this month.

The 101-year-old bridge, which cantilevers over the East River from 59th Street in Manhattan to Long Island City, Queens, is not the only structure to be rechristened this week. State legislators voted on Tuesday to rename the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel after former Gov. Hugh L. Carey.

The two renamings would be the most significant change to New York City nomenclature since the Triborough Bridge took the mantle of Robert F. Kennedy two years ago.

The creation of the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge must be approved by the City Council; Speaker Christine C. Quinn said Tuesday that she supported it, adding that Mr. Koch “deserves way more than a street.” The renaming of the tunnel awaits only the expected signature of Gov. David A. Paterson. The 60-year-old tunnel originates in Brooklyn, Mr. Carey’s birthplace. And the Queensboro Bridge crosses into the former Congressional district of Mr. Koch.

i never knew this thread existed and it is absolutely incredible..............but there is no way you can confuse the Verrazano with the Whitestone or any other similar looking bridge. The Verrazano is an exquisite , awe inspiring structure. Other then the Golden Gate Bridge, this one is King

Yes but Hellgate's is more similar, because of the stone structures at the ends. Sydney's bridge has those.

i'll clarify, i meant suspension bridges only. GGB is #1 , Verrazano #2 the other suspension bridges in NY pale in comparison to Verrazano, hence my comment

a friend of mine who lives in Jersey told me there was talk of replacing the Bayonne as the traffic deck sits too low to allow certain types of vessels through and it is hampering economic growth. anyone know anything about that? it would be a shame, that's quite a beautiful bridge

There was talk as well of replacing one of the other Staten Island/Jersey crossings. Part of the recent finalization of the WTC redevelopment involves the PA rebuildng the Bayonne Bridge.
