Verazzano Bridge

Am I the only one who thinks that the Verazzono bridge is the worst standing structure in all of NYC?

I mean $10 to go on a bridge that is constantly under construction, leaking water, and always PACKED with traffic is in my book, the biggest ripoff.

Sorry - I'll take that statement off. No offense to anyone here from SI, but in all seriousness that bridge is the worst.

i think discussing Verazzano or GWB or BQE is pointless, all these roadways are under permanent construction, always something wrong.

BQE towards staten island has been under construction for at least 10 years and supposingly finished recently, its still an obstacle course...

Nothing gets me more insane , then the leak coming from the lower level. All the water there using for the concrete pours off the lower level onto the roadway leading upto the bridge from the belt.

Nothing sucks more than having a freshly washed car... then getting soaked crossing that bridged.

Heyyyyyyyyyy Girl

Yesterday I got a car wash and had to go into SI for some work stuff... car gets soaked and then I got pulled over by SI Hwy Patrol for no front plate and tints. Lucky for me I only got a ticket for no Front plate

Good day...

O.T. hows all the e46 drama doing I've permanently removed myself from that scene.

Last time I made the mistake of taking the lower level after a fresh wash... My car looked like I took it off roading.

I just gave the finger to all the construction workers to make myself feel better.
