Robert F. Kennedy (Triborough) Bridge

Robert F. Kennedy (Triborough) Bridge


Opened in 1936, the same year as the Henry Hudson Bridge, this suspension bridge is really 3 bridges in one. The main part goes from Manhattan onto Randall’s Island at 125th St. & 1st Ave. then splits from there on into the boroughs of The Bronx and Queens. This bridge has some really fantastic views, and you could just imagine how, since it crosses into 3 boroughs! ‘But, and it’s a big BUT…’from Manhattan to Randalls Island, the bridge is 2,591 feet long, and that’s maybe a fraction of its total length which I would estimate to be 2 1/2 miles.

Pedestrian entrances are located at: Hoyt Ave/26th St. in the Astoria section of Queens; 124-126th St/2nd Ave in the Harlem section of Manhattan; and, 134th St./Cypress Ave in the South Bronx section of The Bronx.

Construction Duration: 1929-1936
Total Length (including approaches): 13,820 feet (for all 3 boroughs)
Width: 98 feet
# of Traffic Lanes: 6-8
Cost to build: $60.3 million
Clearance above water: 25 feet
