Robert F. Kennedy Bridge

Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, New York City, connecting the boroughs of Manhattan, the Bronx, and Queens. Completed in 1936 and originally named the Triborough Bridge, it comprises three separate sections—a suspension bridge crossing the East River, a lift bridge spanning the Harlem River, and a fixed bridge across the Bronx Hills. Including the viaducts that connect the sections, the bridge's total length is c.3 mi (4.8 km). It was renamed in 2008.
