FDR Jones: I don't know who Tappan Zee is, but I always thought it was a stupid name for a bridge.

I believe it comes from the old German window tappers who would tap on zee vindow to see if anyone was inside. It was originally called The Tappen Zee Vindow Bridge, with the logo of an old German man tapping his finger against a window, but over time the window part faded away.

Well, we could name it after Jane Goodall - she was good with Chimpan Zees. But I think she's still alive.

Pete Seeger was a national treasure.

The Tappan Zee Bridge is going to kill several thousand people some day.

Rename half of the shiat named after Reagan and I'll be good.  Pete Seeger National Airport.  Sounds nice.

czetie: Is that better or worse than New Jersey naming an I95 service center after Walt Whitman?

Walt Whitman was master of the pan flute and sold more records than Elvis or The Beatles.

I'm originally from the area and used to work in the Empire State Building. I was more worried from that bridge being the death of me than a future terrorist attack.

"Rock 'n' Roll Never Forgits" isn't a very good song.  I don't see what all the fuss is about. Or that Risky Business song with the closeted guy dancing in his underwear.
