Throgs Neck Bridge, New York City

3.4
The Throgs Neck Bridge is a suspension bridge opened on January 11, 1961, which carries Interstate 295 over the East River where it meets the Long Island Sound. The bridge connects the Throggs Neck section of the Bronx with the Bay Terrace section of Queens. It is the newest bridge across the East River and was built to relieve traffic on the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge 2 miles to the west, which opened in 1939. The Throgs Neck Bridge is the easternmost crossing off of Long Island. Due to this and its proximity to both the Cross Bronx Expressway and the New England Thruway, it is the closest route from Long Island to New Jersey via the George Washington Bridge; upstate New York; Connecticut; and other points north and east.
The Throgs Neck Bridge is owned by the City of New York and operated by the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority, an affiliate agency of the MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority).

  • The throngs neck bridge connects Queens to the Bronx. I have been on it many times, this time I went under it underway from manhasset.  more »
  • I prefer this bridge over the Whitestone Bridge. There is less congestion and sweeping views of the Long Island Sound. Remember you EZ Pass!  more »

  • Sailing here is amazing. Great views.
  • No more toll booths! When I was a child, I was afraid to go over bridges, but we traveled it a lot to visit grandparents. Well, it's still standing, and the frustrating, endless line of cars at toll booths is gone. My dad would be so happy....
