Bridge to be named after Dinkins?
From the Daily News:
Ed Koch has a bridge named after him, so why not David Dinkins?
That’s the question City Councilman Fernando Cabrera will ask Thursday when he introduces a bill to rename the Willis Avenue Bridge after New York’s first and only African-American mayor.
“David Dinkins was a political pioneer,” said Cabrera (D-Bronx). “Nobody knows who Willis was. But Dinkins was the mayor who turned the city around.”
Mr. Cabrera believes in revisionist history, apparently.
