The Throgs Neck Bridge

Henry Throg was a famous General in the French and Indian war. He led a small naval battle against the French as they tried to advance on New York from Canada via the Hudson river. This battle took place at what is now known as Throgs Neck. This battle is memorialized by a plaque at the base of the Throgs Neck Bridge
