Who needs a bridge when we have all the essentials?


Slow down, you move too fast
You got to make the morning last
Just kicking down the cobblestones
Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy 

It won’t be too long before people refer to Manhattan as the “old neighborhood,” and visit it nostalgically like Italians returning to Bensonhurst and Jews (used) to the Lower East Side.  ‘Look, that’s where mommy and daddy used to live, and that’s where they used to drink before they knew each other.’

Anyway, you better take that tour soon, because driving the kids in to visit ‘The City’ might soon cost you an extra $5-6 each way due to new tolls that look likely to be placed on the Queensboro, Williamsburg, Manhattan, and Brooklyn Bridges.  Oh well, at least it’s only two more weeks until pitchers and catchers report.

    I think tolls benefit LIC and in particular Queens Plaza. It will reduce traffic because now people will not have an incentive to only take the Queensboro Bridge to avoid paying a toll. It will also help reduce a negligible amount of traffic in the “Old neighborhood”.
