The Queensboro Bridge under construction in an undated photo.  The bridge was opened for use in 1909.  Also known as the 59th Street Bridge (of SImon & Garfunkel fame) it’s been recently renamed in honor of former NYC mayor Ed Koch.  Photographer unknown; more info and interesting history here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queensboro_Bridge
