Throgs Neck Bridge
Spans the East River.
The third and most easterly of Robert Moses Bronx/Queens crossings. This bridge was completed in 1961 as a reaction to the steadily increasing traffic jams on the Triboro and Bronx-Whitestone. Unfortunately, the more bridges Moses built, the more traffic actually increased on all of them, thus providing a textbook example that increased capacity leads to more traffic.
No bike or pedestrian path here, which many attribute to Robert Moses famous dislike of human-powered transportation.
