Brooklyn New York
I Love My Home Town
The Kosciuszko Bridge is a truss bridge that spans Newtown Creek between Brooklyn and Queens, connecting Greenpoint, Brooklyn and Maspeth, Queens. It is a part of Interstate 278, which is also locally known as the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. The bridge opened in 1939, replacing the Penny Bridge from Meeker Avenue in Brooklyn to Review Avenue and Laurel Hill Boulevard. It was named in honor of Tadeus Kościuszko, a Polish volunteer who was a General in the American Revolutionary War.
