The Queensboro Bridge is open today after its four alarm fire yesterday afternoon. It's unclear what caused the fire (hypothesis is that construction materials caused it), but thousands of drivers were inconvenienced as the bridge was totally shut down for a part of the time. There were no injuries. Perhaps the Department of Transportation (or whichever agency) should think again about keeping flammable tarps on a bridge for over a year.
The bridge carries 189,250 cars a day. It was built in 1909 and is famously captured in the poster for the film, Manhattan.
