The Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (or BQE, as it is popularly known) is an expressway that runs from southern Brooklyn to northern Queens (both boroughs of New York City, New York), which it connects to Queens' Grand Central Parkway. It is a portion of Interstate 278. Because it is the main artery of travel between the city's two most populous boroughs, the expressway is famous for its traffic congestion during rush hours. It is notoriously difficult to find an entrance to the expressway in Brooklyn, as parodied in the 1990 film Quick Change, starring Bill Murray. The expressway is the eponymous subject of a small stage show and film by singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens.
