This has to be one of the longest suspension bridges and one of the most expensive. It cost $15 to cross this bridge from Brooklyn into Staten Island. Coming into Brooklyn is free to cross. There are 2 levels to this beautiful brige. Unlike the Manattan and Brooklyn Bridges it is not open to bikes nor walking traffic, Cars and... More

Nice Bridge, but like all bridges in New York, usually filled with Traffic! This bridge connects Queens, NY to Staten Island, NY.

$15.00 (without EZ Pass) gets you a round trip between Brookyn and Staten Island. As a Staten Islander it's not an attraction as much as it's a necessity. If you need to drive into the other boroughs you have no choice. The view from the bridge is great on clear days (if your driving, please keep your eyes on the... More

I've lived near this bridge most of my life and saw it go up back in the 60s. I remember many homes and businesses had to go under the wrecking ball to put this monster project up. It was sorely needed because the only way to get across the narrows was a slow ferry. It's a nice looking bridge but... More

... not really an attraction. It is big and it is tall. If you need to drive to Staten Island from Brooklyn, or vica versa, it is very useful. You cannot walk across. But would you want to? Since the introduction of EZPass you are no longer aware of the fact that the toll is astronomical.

Just a bridge, and overpriced bridge to cross at that. Best view is from under it when you are on a cruise ship leaving the city. This bridge always seems to have an accident on it too, leading to congestion. Ugh, not a fan of this bridge.

A bridge that connects Brooklyn and Staten Island that dwarfs everything around it. A marvel of technology and engineering that will not soon be forgotten.
