    Angry Petition to return the name of that new bridge from Mario Cuomo to Tappan Zee

    Hi folks and I know it's been a while.

    I have a pet peeve. Gratuitous name changes of various bridges, tunnels, etc

    Last summer in a late night session current NY governor Andrew Cuomo decided the rebuilt Tappan Zee bridge should be named for his father. Mario Cuomo.

    There is a petition to take back our historically named Tappan Zee. So named for the Tappan Indians and the dutch settlers in the Westchester and Rockland N Y counties.

    Please take the time to sign and share: https://www.change.org/p/the-ny-stat...ians-and-dutch

    Nice to see you back. I always wondered where the name Tappan Zee came from and I was unaware that it had been renamed. I guess I haven't been west for a while.

    The bridge has been completely rebuilt and is fabulously modern. In fact I have a friend who took the inaugural drive across when it first opened earlier this year. Despite the new construction I object strongly to the political nepotistic erasure of its historical name.
