Governor Cuomo, Mario Cuomo, Cuomo Bridge discussed on Pat Farnack


It's about time. But I just wish they would keep it as the tappan Zee bridge as opposed to the Cuomo bridge all always call, and I'm sure a lot of. People don't know anyone that refers to it as the Mario Cuomo brick. I haven't heard anybody say what was the old bridge wasn't at the mouth. Now. Gum wilson. Did anyone call it? Not the Muslim no not really change your back Tappin Zee the name dominates conversations, not the smooth ride wider lanes or shoulders another controversy the delayed opening engineers postponed.
