Gazing upon this engineering feat, from the mid 20th century, you realize two things....how massive it is, and that the earth is round...it sounds ridiculous, but this bridges extends so far, that the towers seam to be out of "plumb" or , in normal speak, not straight. This is due to the curvature of the planet. It is noticed from... More

I happen to live a few blocks from the Bridge and can see it from my home windows. It's quite a site at any time of day or night. Suggest you take the Belt Parkway drive especially from lower Brooklyn or Manhattan; also beautiful site coming from Long Island. Try sunset.

It's always a great experience to pass through the bridge. And then the view of the bride from Belt Parkway is so beautiful, particularly on a clear sky day. Verrazano Bridge deserves lot more praise and recognition for what it is, as much as the Golden Gate.

We caught the ferry across to Staten Island and did a tour of the island with a local and saw a lot of the island that most tourists never visit. She took us to a vantage point to view the bridge (and there were a number of goats perched along the ledge viewing it with us). Much longer than I... More

Currently under construction and probably will be for several years. If you can bear the terrible traffic viewing NY Harbor when arriving in Brooklyn from Staten Island is an Awesome site.

The bridge connects Staten Island and Brooklyn. It is free from Staten Island to Brooklyn. If you want to save some money come into Brooklyn via the Verrazano, then into Manhattan via the Williamsburg bridge, then back to NJ via the Holland or Lincoln tunnels. All these directions are free. Coming the opposite directions you pay big time!!!!!!!

This bridge was being built when I was only 14 years of age. It bridged the way from Staten Island to Brokklyn, where before hand you had to take a ferry to get across.It is a majestic bridge that has a beautiful view from all angels. Expecially when traveling from Staten Island to Brooklyn and you can see the Manhattan... More
