“Golden gate of east”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

I have been to Golden gate bridge 2-3 times. This bridge reminded me of that bridge so much.
It has nice park like area for jogging or relaxing, it's good for evening walk or a relaxing stroll. There is a toll to cross the bridge but you can just see it from brooklyn side.

“Most Beautiful Bridge for a Metropolitan Area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

Especially during off-peak time, you can whizz thru and enjoy the view of the bridge from the Belt Parkway and on the bridge! No wonder the bridge was filmed in a lot of movies, for example, Saturday Night Fever with John Travolta.

“Beautiful but so expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

This is a beautiful bridge; however, getting there can be a horror whether you're coming from NJ and have to bear the traffic in Staten Island, or coming from Brooklyn and have to crawl through traffic on the Belt Parkway. And the fee is now $13, which is ridiculous. I take the Betsy Ross Bridge into Phila. and the cost is $5. Add to that the fee for the Outerbridge Crossing (I believe it's $12) and going into NY becomes a very expensive venture. Sorry, it may be gorgeous, but the outrageous fees makes me feel taken advantage of each time I cross it.
