5. Governor Cuomo Took the First Test Ride of the New Kosciuszko Bridge in FDR’s 1932 Packard Car

During yesterday’s grand opening, Governor Andrew Cuomo took the first test ride of the new Kosciuszko Bridge, pulling up in style in Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 1932 Packard car. Fitted with an “ILOVENY” license plate, the car was brought out of a New York State museum and restored; it hadn’t been in use for 30 years. The stunt was intended to “bring the spirit” of Roosevelt to the momentous event.
