I will say crossing the bridge and getting into the correct lane with minimal traffic was challenging based on how the lanes were set up. Can only imagine what its like during peak driving. On the other hand walking over on a beautiful sunny late...More

This is a very dis-organized bridge. For some stupid reason they put the expass lanes in the middle, not to one side or the other. At busy times, when traffic backs up, you can't get to the ezpass lanes which just slows everything down. In...More

This Bridge has been here since the Ferry was discontinued. Still pay a toll but only one way. Lots of improvement done & no waiting at Toll booth unless its a holiday. Still doesn't cost as much as other bridges.

I take this bridge regularly when I ride my bike. The bike path is not heavily used, and the pedestrians usually give way. There are also fantastic views of the Hudson from the bridge. For Fourth of July this is the greatest place to come...More
