Throg(g)s Neck

June 14th, 2012

The Bronx approach to the Throgs Neck Bridge is graced by this sign that looks straight out of some crummy subdivision. The neighborhood of Throggs Neck is often spelled with two g's, especially by old-timers, but government agencies generally prefer the streamlined, single-g version for use on street signs and the like. So if you take a trip out to the Neck and don't want to seem like an outsider, make sure you pronounce your Throggs with that extra g.
