Bridge Name

State Senate passes bill to return to Tappan Zee

The New York State Senate passed a measure to rename the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo bridge between Tarrytown and Nyack but the bill did not get out of committee in the Assembly. Sen. Sue Serino, who represents the Highlands, voted yes.

A group called Save Our Tappan Zee that has collected more than 110,000 signatures online said it was pleased with the Senate action. The bridge was renamed in 2017 after the father of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, but the group suggests a compromise: The Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Tappan Zee Bridge.

  1. It should be called The People’s Bridge of NY State. Or NY State Taxpayers’ Bridge.
