It's inevitable that the Queens-Midtown Tunnel go next so I've been thinking of politicians who might receive the dubious and posthumous honor of having their own tunnel. Bella Abzug? She deserves it. And it would break up the Boys Club of bridge and tunnel names. But she was born in the Bronx and made her career in Manhattan. Donald Manes? The disgraced head of the Queens Democratic machine? I doubt the suits at the DOT (or whoever makes the decision) would go for that. How about John Lindsay? It would give him one last chance to reach out the voters of Queens.
