  • I cross this bridge more times than I wish to. Usually for meetings at work. Just sweeping views of Upper Manhattan and Jersey. A nightmare to cross during rush hour, so allow plenty of travel time.  more »

  • It's beautiful and majestic in its own way and quite the opposite of the Golden Gate, for it spans a silver Tower of Power. I grew up with the George Washington Bridge. Probably built to withstand centuries, it is certainly a Modern Marvel with 2 decks for cars and trucks and pedestrians to walk over or use your bike if you wish. Its large silver frame is a beauty as a towers over the Hudson river from The Bronx to New Jersey. They can cost over $15 to cross this bridge from jersey into New York but from New York to jersey it doesn't cost you a thing. I haven't figured that out yet. Over the years I'm sure hundreds of millions of cars then people have crossed this bridge. It is probably one of the busiest bridges in the world. As far is convenience, to get to Jersey it is one good route, however it's a nightmare to cross during rush hours and you can linger on this bridge for sometimes hours. But it has nothing to do with the bridge, it has all to do with the amount of cars that around the road and trucks as well. On the New York side, there are some people that can look right out their windows and almost reach out and touch the bridge. How amazing is that! If you ever get a chance, drive over it but go when you can smoothly take a ride over it and return. By the way, the George Washington Bridge is part of Route 95 and Route 1, that goes from the Florida keys all the way up to Canada.!!
  • Not as aesthetically pleasing as some of the other bridges in New York, although the city views from the bridge are magnificent. One can only walk jog or ride in the South side of the bridge so it can get very congested. Definitely keep aware for speeding bikes when walking. All in all, i prefer the Brooklyn bridge, but the views make it worth it.
