This huge, 2 level bridge leads from Brooklyn to Staten Island and also, through the Staten Island Expressway, to New Jersey via the New Jersey Turnpike. The Turnpike takes you to North or South Jersey including Newark Liberty Airport.

I have driven across this bridge countless times. Yet I never fail to marvel at the splendor of the magnificent views it affords. You can experience great views of the Narrows and the Harbor depending on the direction that you travel.
