New York Harbor on one side; downtown Manhatten on the other. There's little else to be said, except that the bridge itself is a joy to look at.

You do not have to spend the 13 dollars to cross it. Just approach from Manhattan to have you breath taken away

It is a beautiful bridge. It can be seen for miles from an airplane or from the East or West bike, walk, or run path that lead directly under it. Fort Hamilton Army Base holds a Run for the Fallen around the 3rd week of August every year. Look for it and participate. Crossing the bridge from Brooklyn will run you $13. Quite ridiculous considering the bridge had to have been paid for years ago. John Paul Johns, found under the bridge on the Brooklyn side is beautiful and provides the bridge as a backdrop for many a wedding.

The Verrazano is the longest suspension bridge in all of the U.S. Why is the Golden Gate so much more popular? Probably because it's red, or maybe because it is not a pedestrian or bicyclist bridge. Motor vehicles only are allowed on the bridge.

A waterfront park/path travels along the Brooklyn side for about 2 miles in each direction. This path is great for a bike ride, and is also a decent place to bird watch. Plus the pier at the Western end has a great view of Downtown Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. At night the bridge is lit up nicely.

The major downside to the bridge is the toll, which is currently $13 for a round trip.

What needs to be said other than as a Brooklynite, its a Great Bridge with fabulous views of the NY harbor as the Narrows. Early morning when the fog and low hanging clouds are moving in from off the water, the bridge takes on a beautiful mystical appearance. Only two wishes is that they reduce the ridiculous toll ($13) and hoped a walkway would have been built.
