    • The Kush Bridge is definitely a catchy name and seems like it has a chazakah already so you have to know if there’s even makom to switch the name. Just wondering if this Kush related to the one in megilas Esther: “hamoleich meyhoidu ve’ad KUSH”? If so, who was the king over this bridge? Unless it’s ad ve’ad bichlal…

  1. How about? 1)the garbage can bridge 2) the Doona bridge OR maybe like they do with stadiums these days – THEY SELL THE NAME, who knows – maybe the Kedem Bridge, The Gourmet Glatt Bridge, The Charles Tyrwhitt Bridge, The Lakewood Scoop Bridge, The Kupat Hoiyr Bridge, The CHEMED Bridge?????????????

  2. I just checked on google maps, the kush bridge was the original name, and it seems that it has stuck in Lakewood and it is definitely known locally as the kush bridge, I reached out to the google maps support team and they said they had a representative go down there and check it out, he spoke to a few of the neighbors that lived across the street from the lake and they said it was known as the kush bridge

  3. Someone once asked me in an interview why the bridge was named the much bridge, and I laughed because I didn’t realize that no one knew it was sponsored by Donald trump lizchus his son in law Jared Kushner who has plans on moving to Lakewood and enrolling his son into the cheder

  4. With the North & South sides finally connected it should be named
    “The Ulysses S. Grant & Robert E. Lee Bridge of Reconciliation”

  5. I remember when they were naming it The Kush Bridge i went over and asked whats pshat? and i was told that a name is all siyatah dishmaya and there’s a certain ruach hakodesh one gets before giving a name. The only question i still have is what do you say when youre going there? do you say i’m going to the-THE Kush Bridge or you only say the word ‘the’ once? but stam azoy I like the name The Kush Bridge, its a short name which makes it easy to remember, almost like detzach adash be’achav! Derech agav i noticed on google maps that there’s also ‘The Kush Bridge North’ and thats more vichtig because the whole point of the south side is only a heicha timtzah to get to the north (besides for the fact that yeshiva is on the north side) cuz why else would they build the south side if they didnt have the north side?!? and if you tell me maybe fahkert? Ill tell you hachi mistavrah tfey because the north side is older and lichoyrah the oilam likes to get to the older side because its less gashmiyus! agav if they want to name the dock i would tell them to name it what the toirah says: dok dok mechuspas! or dock doc. Shanik, cuz hes the best doc.

  6. I suggest it should be called the Route 9 bridge. Firstly, it will sound as if Lakewood has a bridge over Route 9, solving the unmatched embarrassing traffic. Secondly, since people with trauma from spending their day stuck on route 9 will have a positive association with the name Route 9.

  8. As a life long expert on bridge authority I devled deep into the history of this mysterious bridge an learned that in fact the bridges original name is confirmed the KUSH bridge any one who calls it another name can be be heavily penalized in court for fruad copyright ECT. The name KUSH is actually derived from the Yiddish language and means KISS in English which is coming to symbolize the fact that that the bridge brings together the two lips of Lakewood the north side and the south side of the lake an unbelievable accomplishment I will continue with my study on this fascinating subject but this is what I was able to pull up as of now
    Good luck to all
