The Cuomo Bridge naming controversy

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

By now, you've likely heard about the controversy surrounding the name of the new bridge that connects Westchester and Rockland County. 

The new span to replace the old Tappan Zee Bridge was named after the late Governor Mario Cuomo.The process of how that name came to be and the fact that it was changed at all, has caused a lot of anger for some residents of the Lower Hudson Valley.  

This week we highlight a Westchester County man's crusade to get the name changed back to the Tappan Zee Bridge.

Join us this weekend on your local PBS station.
