Currently number 11 on the list of worlds longest suspension bridges open since 1968. It's great to see it from the belt parkway at night and watch the submarine races with your favorite partner. You might have to wait for the races to start but I'm sure you'll figure out what to do in the mean time.

This bridge can be seen from some point in all the five boroughs. Its the youngest bridge in NYC, though it certainly doesn't seem like it. For some unfathomable reason, it also the most expensive bridge to cross in NYC, further alienating us from our Staten Island and its wiles.

I heard all the stories of the building of the bridge and was amazed how they did It but living right near it made a fan it really is special and something to see.

As bridges go, it's attractive. And it's the only way to get to Staten Island from Brooklyn by car. But it's not open for walking, so it's not really what I would call an attraction. Still, it's pretty.

Like the title says it very cool to look at especially at night time when it is all light up. You have a great view of the city and the Statue of Liberty which you can actually enjoy especially during rush hour when you are moving at a snails pace. What is not cool is paying the toll everyday on... More

The Verrazano Bridge is a wonderful sight when one is biking on the Shore Parkway Bike Path or when you driving over the bridge on a crispy clear day. However, bikes are not allowed. Opening a bike path would open the world of Staten Island to thousands of cyclists. A perfect Sunday would be biking over the bridge and exploring... More

I love how this bridge gets you from Brooklyn to Staten Island without ever getting your feet wet! Not to mention the architectural beauty of it. I believe it is very similar to the Golden Gate Bridge. I've also sailed under this massive bridge. Breathtaking!!
