Narrow is right

Be careful when driving across this bridge as the barriers are close together and there is a lot of construction. The view is nice and so is the architecture.

I take the Verrazano everyday to and from work. As you exit the on the ramp to the Belt Pkwy you will see a breathtaking view of the Narrows. I don't mind if the ramp is backed up because I get extra time to look at the water. I just wish they would finish all the construction work!!!

There may be other, better views but this was pretty neat for my first drive into Brooklyn. A long suspension span and some lanes were closed for construction. Bumper to bumper and door to door traffic but it was manageable. It does offer a great perspective of the New York skyline.

It's a beautiful bridge that I go over everyday. You want to stay to the left if you approach the ramp via the Belt Parkway to ride the top. On a clear day the view is stunning and, if you are visiting, may be work the 16 bucks it costs to ride the bridge roundtrip. They are doing construction on... More

I usually do not rate bridges in my travels but going over this one provided great views for the city as we left Brooklyn and went into Staten Island. We actually went out of our way to travel over it. As I was the driver I didn't get to see as much of the view as my wife did.Be careful... More

I did not cross this bridge in August of 2016. My daughter did while on a business trip. But it did remind me that as a 10 year old boy, I crossed the Verrazano on its opening day in November 1964. My Dad had us all pile in the car early that morning to experience a piece of history. Even... More
