Vallone is Right (for once)

Don't change the name of the Queensboro Bridge to the Koch Bridge. It sounds nasty. Or, as Peter Vallone, Jr. says:

“Mayor Ed Koch is truly a great man and deserving of an honor like this,” Mr. Vallone wrote, “but renaming a landmark so closely linked to our borough’s culture and history is not appropriate. The city would not rename the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Queensboro Bridge should be treated equally.”

"...Cause that's where I'm from!"

The real reason Astoria might be so great is that, as I just found out, the best food cart in NYC may be here... and I haven't even tried it... and yet I barely miss it. I eat just fine.
