How Well Do You Know New York?

Randolph Mase Blogging Tips 2

One of the categories on a past Jeopardy! episode was “New York People, Places & Things.”   Here are the answers; just come up with the correct question for each. I’ll give the questions in a future post:

  1. Completed in 1883, this bridge over the East River was built at a cost of $15 million (but I’ll sell it to you for a cool 10).
  2. The programs of this mayor of NYC from 1934 to 1945 included slum clearance & airport construction.
  3. James & Franklin, sons of this First Lady & native New Yorker, both served in the House of Representatives.
  4. He was born Henry McCarty in New York City; some 22 years later, Pat Garrett put an end to him.
  5. 38 miles long & 3 miles wide at its broadest point, Seneca is the largest of this “body part” group of lakes.
