"The uptown bridge"

There's not a lot to say about the Queensboro Bridge other than the fact that it's a bridge. It's quite a lovely sight at night, and I think it's the second prettiest Manhattan Bridge after the Brooklyn. It was completed in 1909 and about 50 lives and $18 million dollars were the cost of its construction. It's a massive bridge with 10 lanes and two levels and it's the only bridge uptown. It is referenced in a few Woody Allen pics and The Great Gatsby so I guess it has always made a sort of romantic impression. It doesn't hurt that this bridge is the only bridge that enters the city in a nice neighborhood and that neighborhood happens to be one of the nicest in Manhattan. You can see the Mayor's Mansion and all of these beautiful homes as you're descending and none of the other guys present that sort of aesthetic.
There's also a really nice market below the bridge which I can hardly say about the others.
You can't, obviously, live on the bridge but this the only bridge you can live right next to without being in a sketchy stretch of street.
  • Gorgeous view
  • Starts in a nice neighborhood
  • Bridges are kind of scary
