Way Too Early for the Airport : Queensborough Bridge : NYC

So I went to bed at 1AM then got back up at 3AM .... I was rolling towards LaGuargia airport by 4-00AM .... The driver took me for a tourist type with my camera and British accent.... He started telling me things like he was practicing leading a tour bus ....

For instance he told me the bridge we were using to get off of Manhattan Island had three names ...the one I hear most often ... The one I always use myself.. The Queensborough Bridge... But it was apparently renamed to honor a previos mayor of New York City... Mayor Ed Koch... So it's also the Mayor Koch Bridge... Who knew? I've heard the name but kind of assumed the Mayor Ed Koch bridge was somewhere in Queens not actually attached at one end to Manhattan...?? But for extra confusion... it's also apparently often referred to as the 59th Street Bridge....

Confusing at any time of day.... but how is the taxi driver chirpily delivering all this information at 4-37AM ... How is doin it ?.. You know it's just way too early when you are crossing out of Manhattan to get a flight.... And the bridge or tunnel which ever you take ... whatever it's called... and no matter how many names it has ... Yeah when any bridge looks like this....like it is still totally the middle of the night... Its just too early............

Yeah, even now as I write this on my phone... I have been flying for hours .. Enough time to be served two grim but necessary coffees anyway ... This feels like hours of flying... And it is still only 6-45AM ... Heading for wheels down in Minnesota ... At 7-50 AM... This really is an early flight... It is just totally brutal.... Wooow ... Who on earth booked these flights? hehehehe......... :-)))))))))) XXXXXXX

Cheers Jez XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

PS.......... I wrote this early this morning on my phone as I was flying ......... its now approx midnight ......... thats a pretty long working day ........ 21 hours ?? .............. :-// :-))))))))) XXXXXXX
