|George Washington Bridge, NYC Photos Gallery - Page 2|
|We've now ventured into Fort Washington Park near the George Washington Bridge. Along the rocky coast can be found waterfowl, folks fishing and others simply lazing in the sun. There are also tennis courts, softball fields and other opportunities to try out your sport whether it be biking, running, skating or whatever.||Again, take note that everyone seems to be welcomed to venture in this far but yours truly has had quite a bit of trouble getting out. Hehe, we actually found ourselves dodging traffic after already hiking a mile or so uphill. Definitely not fun! Maybe the Parks Department or our Department of Transportation will get on top of this eventually.|
|The George Washington Bridge is a two level suspension toll bridge which allows also for bicycling and pedestrians across its span. Yet another great masterpiece by the great Othmar Ammann, construction on this bridge began in 1927 and the bridge opened on October 25, 1931.|| At the center of the bridge,
it stands 212 feet above the waters and from end to end is 7,140 feet.
Within the upper and lower of the bridge are 14 traffic lanes.
At the other end of the Bridge within New Jersey are the Palisades.
