Better Than Google

The Tappan Zee Bridge has never been without controversy.  In 1936, when the bridge was first proposed, there was much outrage that the bridge would despoil the natural beauty of Rockland County. This plan was considered unfeasible and was dropped.  In the early 1950s, when the bridge was again proposed to be built between Tarrytown and South Nyack, people were confused and upset.  Why build the bridge at the widest point of the Hudson?  It made no sense.  This caused great consternation among the citizens of these two municipalities who worried that their quality of life would change for the worse. Despite bitter opposition from the locals, the bridge was approved and opened in December 1955, altering the character of sleepy Rockland County forever.
