My Illustrations of the musical score are also inspired by this Bridge, one of three sonically treated by the composer in his 2016 composition "Three Manhattan Bridges" (George Washington & Brooklyn being the other two).
The Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge is one of the major crossings of the East River, each day carrying over 170,270 vehicles, 5,400 cyclists, and more than 2,000 pedestrians (2017 counts) between the boroughs of Manhattan and Queens and serving some of the busiest arteries in New York City. It is a five span cantilever truss; the only one of the four great East River Bridges that is not a suspension bridge. Opened to traffic in 1909.
