It's not the Triboro Bridge.

Priceless. I love those local queens papers... makes me wonder how much they drink while at work and why the heck I don't have a job working for them...

It looks like either the Whitestone or Throgs Neck bridge...it's definitely not the Triborough though...

Isn't that the same paper that said the Blackwell Mansion was occupied by the British during the Civil War?

Yes, it's definitely the Throgs Neck.

The article also says the Triboro "is a massive structure comprised of three brides [sic]." This was a surprise to me; I had always assumed it was a monogamous bridge.

It's in Black and White! Black and White is obviously a relic from the past and has no value in today's society. Everything must be new, updated and modern! What is this a daguerreotype?

That's the best thing about living in Queens - the lack of landmarks! I love that we get rid of those old , outdated structures and replace them with much more functional and aesthetically pleasing ones.

Also it goes to show you how much the Triborough bridge has changed in all these years. Couldn't they have found a picture of how it looks today?
