Queensboro Bridge gets birthday bash with tributes and big blast

Breaking News

The history of Queens can in many respects be divided into two eras - the days before the Queensboro Bridge and everything that happened after.

The 7,449-foot span is being feted over the next few weeks with an array of tributes, exhibits, lectures and tours coordinated by the NYC Bridge Centennial Commission.

The main event is a historic reenactment of the first ride over the bridge, complete with politicians in period dress, antique cars and a nighttime fireworks show on May 31.
