This bridge leads you from Staten Island to Manhattan. It is the longest and highest bridge to do that that connection...and the most expensive.

My favorite bridge when I was a kid! Traveled on this a lot to go to New Jersey and Staten Island to visit friends.

This bridge is beautiful. We went on a Caribbean cruise and sailed under the brisge. Definitely a different perspective. Driving, the upper level is the most scenic.

You can view it up close along the sea wall, drive over it, but you cannot walk on it. A nice picture when the freighters are lined up on their approach into New York Harbor. All I can really say, "Its a bridge"!

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 mean, the Verrazano is OK and all.. but the traffic can blow. The new Goethals is gonna be way cooler.

At night the Verrazano is impressive, particularly when viewed from the high ground of Staten Island. It can be a terrific bottle neck, though, between Brooklyn and Staten Island. At the base, on the Staten Island side, is Fort Wadsworth. The old fort is worth...More

I believe you can, I've seen cars pulling boats across, but you would have to use the upper level.
