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've named it thrice. This fellow said it all: *** Over the great bridge, with the sunlight through the girders making a constant flicker upon the moving cars, with the city rising up across the river in white heaps and sugar lumps all built with a wish out of non-olfactory money. The city seen from the Queensboro Bridge is always... More

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

Walked from our hotel across the Queensboro bridge one morning instead of getting subway. Great views from the bridge as you cross Roosevelt island too. Very safe to walk over, loads of people on bikes but more space than on Brooklyn bridge I found. Be careful tho, those cyclists can do some speed...

We walked over this bridge and it wasn't as good as the other bridges. For one the people on bicycles are not super concerned with pedestrians. They do go pretty fast and you really need to watch out for them and get out of their way. The views weren't great either. Walk it if you are a regular visitor to... More
