Henry Bruckner (June 17, 1871 – April 14, 1942) was an American politician from New York.


Born in New York City, he attended the common and high schools in New York and became engaged in the manufacture of mineral waters in 1892. He was a member of the New York State Assembly (New York Co., 35th D.) in 1901. He was commissioner of public works for the borough of the Bronx from 1902 to 1905.

Bruckner was elected as a Democrat to the Sixty-third, Sixty-fourth, and Sixty-fifth Congresses and held office from March 4, 1913 until December 31, 1917, when he resigned; while in the House he was chairman of the Committee on Railways and Canals (Sixty-fifth Congress). He resumed his former business pursuits in New York City and was also interested in banking; from 1918 to 1934 he was Bronx Borough president. He died in the Bronx in 1942. He is interred at Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx.

One of the Bronx's main freeways, the Bruckner Expressway, is named in his honor.[1]
