We crossed the Verrazano around 6am en route to Hershey, PA. That early in the morning, crossing the bridge is quite easy. Looking right when Staten Island bound you see a few ferries, barges, and maybe a cruise ship.

It's a feat of engineering, a soaring bridge that links Brooklyn to Staten Island. An important part of the region's highway network. We sailed under it in our cruise ship and it is magnificent on the horizon.

This is a very. long bridge. The Verrazanno Narrows Bridge connects Brooklyn with Staten Island, both boroughs of NYC. The bridge spans the entrance to the New York harbor. It was once the longest suspension bridge in the world. The bridge is the easiest way to get to Staten Island, though it may be cheaper to take the ferry.

CONS
• Double deck
• Heavy traffic

“I VISITED THIS PLACE”…
… when going from D.C. to JFK in NYC… and it was taking a lot longer than we hoped and expected.

When Waze instructed to go on the bottom deck, presumably because that was faster, so that’s what I did (that’s also what happened when we crossed the George Washington Memorial Bridge from Manhattan to New Jersey- read my recent reviews of that).

So I saw many cars in front of me in stop-and-go traffic and an accident and it felt claustrophobic and narrow and confined. on that lower level

I did get to catch glimpses of the bridge as I meandered through the areas of a Brooklyn, until I got in the Belt Parkway, which I could very nice and scenic on a Sunday afternoon- the water/the joggers/the bicyclists.

TIP
Go on the top deck

You will get views of Stanten Island and other New York areas from this bridge that contributes to pollution.

A great drive either way. Stunning view of the harbor and of Brooklyn and Staten Island. Easy to speed across. Take your time to take it in. Also lovely to see from the parks along the water in Bay Ridge.

I live close to this beautiful bridge. I’ve always found it beautiful but never appreciated it until I went to San Fransisco and saw The Golden Gate Bridge. While on a tour, we were told that the Verrazano is largest expansion bridge, The Golden Gate Bridge comes in second.

I crossed the bridge before the rush hour traffic. It was smooth sailing all the way across. I was over the bridge in less than five minutes. I'm a big fan of crossing the Verrazano early and seeing the boats in New York Harbor.

This bridge is huge so it's often in your sight as you travel around the area. We've seen it from the narrows as we travel on ships and it is majestic. Major transportation artery linking Brooklyn and Staten Island.

The Verrazano Bridge connects the Brooklyn and Staten Island boroughs. It is an impressive bridge with a mirador where you can stop on the way to the JFK airport or Long Island. It is a beautiful sight at night.
