The Queensboro Bridge will be named for former NYC Mayor Edward Koch.   The current Mayor , soon to be presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg will ask the City Council to rename the 101-year-old bridge in honor of Edward Koch. The trend in New York is to name all of its bridges and tunnels for former politicians.  The Brooklyn Battery tunnel is now the “Gov. Hugh Carey Battery Tunnel.”  The Triboro Bridge was renamed the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge.
