One of the most spectacular bridges in the five boroughs—and one of the busiest bridges in the world—this two-story, 14-lane structure was opened in 1931, with a lower level added in 1962. Dubbed the GWB by commuters, this suspension bridge—where New Yorkers head to Jersey and vice versa over the Hudson River—is always chock-full o’ cars, trucks, bikes and pedestrians. Patriotic drivers can salute one of the world’s largest American flags, which hangs from the top of the structure, as they pass below.
