This week you will vote on re-naming the Queensboro Bridge for former Mayor Ed Koch.
This is not about Ed Koch.
This is all about Queens.
And about how you feel about Queens and the people who live in Queens.
The bridge is Queens's bridge, not a plaything that will respond to any name it is called.
The Queensboro Bridge sums up Queens: hardworking, tough, practical and a little rough around the edges.
The Queens Civic Congress is an umbrella of more than 110 neighborhood based organizations representing residents of every part of Queens. QCC is the only borough wide civic group of its kind in New York City.
QCC urges you to vote for Queens. Vote to retain the current name of the Queensboro Bridge.
