Councilman Peter Vallone Jr., The Politicker’s favorite social media political pundit, responded to the news about a piece of the Queensboro bridge falling on a passing car with a Facebook post criticizing the money spent renaming the bridge after former Mayor Ed Koch and expressing the hope he never has to read about a “chunk of Ed Koch.'”

“i guess we should have spent all that sign changing money on repairing the bridge??” Mr. Vallone asked.

More than a quarter million dollars was spent renaming the bridge last April. Mr. Vallone was the first elected opponent of the renaming.

Mr. Vallone’s post also expressed his gratitude no one uses the bridge’s new name (other than Mr. Koch himself). The headline of the Daily News article Mr. Vallone posted on Facebook read, “Look out below! Chunk of Queensboro Bridge falls on Mercedes.”

“and i’m glad the papers are still calling it the ‘queensboro’ tho,” Mr. Vallone wrote. “not sure a chunk of ‘ed koch’ falling on someone is a headline i ever want to see.. :)”
