Thanks! Some of these I knew, but, surprisingly, didn't recall the West Side Highway to be renamed for Joe DiMaggio at all. This roadway was the victim of Mayor Lindslee's (Mike Quill's of the infamous transit strike deliberate mispronunciation of his name) fiscal juggling using capital budget funds for current, ongoing expenses. What a shame to have let this structure deteriorate to the point of collapsing! I remember going on the elevated West Side Highway to the Ringling Brothers Circus (of course, now gone) and passing what used to be the Meat Packing District (also gone and/or gentrified).
