“Historic Bridge”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

This is the bridge that Lucy and Ricky drove on when they drove to California and sang the song. I only drive on this bridge going Westbound, which is free. I NEVER drive Eastbound...it's a major major rip-off! On a clear day you can see all of the NYC skyline.

“Walk, Ride, Drive”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Ride your bike over the bridge if you can. If you walk, avoid prime bike times as the bridge gets congested. It's gorgeous though and worth the effort.

Walk, run or bike ride over the GWB (as we call it in NYC). Terrific Manhattan and Hudson River views.

“major construction is always going on”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

But what i like about it is how it looks from a far and the beautiful feeling that you get when you drive over it. i think when construction is over, everyone will be happier.
