    The Ed Koch-Queensboro - 59th s ´ Street Bridge is a really beautiful two-storey bridge on Manhattan's 59th Street, overcomes the East River and connects the Stadttteile Manhatan and Queens. The Queensboro Bridge is 1135 m long, including the access ramps are 2470,5 m. It came during construction to labor disputes, disputes over the design and a huge scandal about too much steel charged. At least 50 people died during the construction to life. The bridge was released on March 30, 1909 for the traffic. Its cost at that time amounted to $ 20 million (by today's value of approximately US$ 575.000.000).

    Almost at the level of the Brooklyn bridge, is one of the bridges linking manhattan, free for cars and walking through it you can see very well the whole island I am past it several times by car, I do not think there is the possibility to walk, but I still recommend seeing it, even from manhattan, is really very nice

    Connecting Manhattan with Queens, at 59th Street. Flanked by cable car, is very photogenic seen from Roosevelt Island

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
