BROOKLYN SECTION SUNDAY, APRIL 19, 1931 7T rn fta it3 u 0J V5 2B c . . . i t i i UP-TO-DATE SPAN'S COST $25,000,000 I5y JOHN DUANE. A MOVEMENT is under way in Queens and the Uronx for the city's approval of the construction across the East river of an ultra-modern bridge between the two boroughs to cost in the neighborhood of $25,000,000. Evidence of interest in the project has been given in the request just made by Controller Berry to tsorougn ( X V 4 U. Williai Magly Presi dent Harvey of Queens for a report on land which might be used for part of the Queens end of the suggest-ed span. Harvey, it is learned, has taken an option on property at the north side of Third ave., west of 147th and the property among proposed St., , "White-stone, has been listed park sites. The new structure would connect Whitestone, Queens and Ferry I'oint, the Bronx, more than a mile tiorthenst of the Y-shaped Tri-borough bridge, construction of " O P ) O N X J&B S" fcattECC 1m a u e e n s Map (above) indicates approximate location suggested for new bridge to connect Queens and the Itronx (heavy lines) and approximate lines of projected Tribor-ough bridge (broken line). which is under way, and which will link Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx. The park site report has been requested, it was learned, to acquaint the controller with possibilities of erecting piers of the proposed bridge. Civic groups in the Bronx are joined in their wish for the new traffic link by members of the Queens planning commission, it is learned. There already has lieen a statement from (J. William Mag-ley, chairman of the Queens planners, that even with better traffic facilities now under way or contemplated, the rapid growth of the borough of Queens makes necessary another bridge between Long Inland and the mainland. When the matter of a new span was discussed a few years ago, a tunnel proposal was suggested. Legislation for a bridge and tunnel authority was proposed by former State Senator Alfred J. Ken-ney, but it failed at Albany. GANG SLAYINGS LINKED TO YALE By GATES MONROE. That dose of gangster medicine which swept roly-poly Joe the Boss out of Brooklyn's gangland Wednesday, has had a stimulating effect in official circles, it was reported last night. Police, it was asserted, are seeking several persons who are believed to be able to link the mur- The late Frankie Yale dered chiseler with the hectic scramble for the dead Frankie Yale's toga. A link which will stand up in a murder trial is sought one of the most difficult objectives local sleuths might set for themselves. List Not Complete. Since July 1, 1928, when Frankie Yale was riddled by lead from his inrone as gang baron of the Brooklyn underworld, a se quence of deaths has been established. Police have called it a half-world demonstration of the lust for power, with bands of gunmen as troops of gaudy chieftains. Joe the Boss, known to police as Giuseppe Masseria, is said to have sought to take over the multitude of racket interests scattered when Yale was plain by machine gun bullets. Curiously, Joe died at one of the most innocent of pastimes playing pinochle with three other men at 2715 West 15th st., Brooklyn, in V v The late The late Joe Masseria Giuseppe Piraioo the Nuova Villa Tammaro. Two gunmen fled, leaving the usual vacrum in the matter of clews. Object Lessons. As Joe was off guard, so have been others who are said to have aspired to Yale's ratzle-daiile power. The list is long, as given by police sources, and those who went to make it up were rubbed out in less than three years. The list is not complete, for at least BOY, 10, VICTIM OF SEASON'S FIRST HIT-RUN CYCLIST The l'J.'Jl spring hit-and-run season being officially declared open, distinction of being first victim in the bicycle division goes ta young James Sullivan, 10, of 1637 West 7th St.. Brooklyn. James merited the uncoveted position by the simple expedient of not getting out of the way of a bicycle as it whirred down the street in front of his home. The rider, about 12, stopped to notify the mother, Mrs. Sadie Sullivan, before he beat a hasty retreat. Rushed to Coney Island hospital, James was found to be suffering from a possible fractured skull and an assortment of cuts and bruises. Hi is recovering at his home. (Picture on Page 1.) two men said to have had the Yale fever, as it has been called, have dropped out of sight, authorities declare. On Oct. 6, 1928, a few days more than three months from the last hours ol Yale, Michael Abbate-marco was found shot to death in his auto at 83d st. and Still well ave.., Brooklyn. Michael, it was reported a few days before, had been talking in the strain of a Yale fever victim. And, Michael paid with his life. It appears to police that the object lesson afforded by this slay ing held weight for more than a year.
