A pair of crossings into New York City are about to be renamed for iconic former New York lawmakers.

The Queensboro Bridge will be rechristened for Mayor Ed Koch, who turns 86 this month, while the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel will be renamed after Governor Hugh Carey.

The City Council must approve the name change for the the 101-year-old 59th Street Bridge, which connects Manhattan to Long Island City, Queens. State legislators voted on the tunnel name change Tuesday.
