Is as yet unnamed by the Govenor.   Would'nt be surprised if the Govenor submits his Dad's name into the naming hat arena.   The Mario Cuomo Memorial Bridge.

They should name it after the taxpayers since they will be paying for it 100 years or more.

Of course, the other alternative is to sell the naming rights for a billion dollars to lighten the debt owed by us taxpayers.

How dare you suggest privatizing a bridge!  Government is the only entity that can create and maintain that miracle called roads.

Although I would not be opposed to privatizing the Tappan Zee or any other bridge, I didn't suggest privatizing - I suggested selling the naming rights just like they did with the Knickerbocker-Pepsi-TimesUnion Arena.

Fair enough.  I guess by doing so, by having the names of the large corporations on the bridges.  It would be a clear indicator to the American people of who the politicians actually work for.  It should be called the Northrop Grumman War Memorial bridge.
