  • Wow! What a great bridge. What would have made the experience better is if Chris Christie actually opened some lanes to let traffic flow, but at least he doesn't grope women or accept foreign donations while killing soldiers in Libya.
  • Great for walking. Biking can get a bit uncomfortable as the path is shared with the pedals and narrows A LOT. To get to the bridge from the Manhattan side is a pain in the neck -- signs are very confusing and the path up the bridge is no narrow it is horrifying. This is the only way to get to the beautiful park in Ft Lee, so it's well worth the trouble. Great views of the river too!
  • Great Bridge for Biking. The parks (at least on the NY side) are very relaxing to go to. Unfortunately if you aren't a pedestrian you'll have to pay a hefty fare of over $15 to cross it by a vehicle. The design of the bridge has held up very well to modern day architecture(my opinion), as most famous bridges do.
  • Jogger and biker paradise, just don't get in their way or get curses and yells fired in your direction. Great if you want to kill 20 minutes walking from New York to New Jersey or vice versa.
  • tried walking across, but it turned out to be too windy, noisy and high up for my teen... not for the faint of heart, because the traffic noise can be disturbing. beautiful views though - worth checking out
