This bridge has been around and was being built when I was 14 years old. It is the main thruway from Staten Island to Brooklyn. At night the sunsets are beautiful looking thru the steel ropes. At night my hubbie and I walk down our block and watch the beautiful site on a regular basis! It is magical at night!

Arrived from the Staten Island direction and crossed into Brooklyn in the early evening. The view of the harbor and Manhattan was spectacular. The drive along the "BQE" to west Brooklyn was an easy one with not much traffic for our arrival at the Box House Hotel.

So, why does trip advisor ask me for a review of a bridge? Its got a lot of cars. You can drive from one side to the other. You can look out the window (if youre not the driver!) and can see manhattan. Yay. A bridge. You drove across, good job! Seriously if you come to NYC and think bridges... More

Whichever side of the bridge your on, Staten Island or Brooklyn, the view is spectacular day or night. I was along Shore Road in Brooklyn. You can walk or bike along there and see the bridge in front of you. You can cross the bridge into SI for a hefty toll, but SI is worth visiting too. Much to see... More

Passed over this bridge numerous times from Staten island to Brooklyn. Although the toll has gone up over the years, this structure has so much history from the building of the bridge to the every day use. The Belt Parkway runs underneath the Brooklyn side. Lots of traffic during rush hours, starting point for the NYC Marathon and support to... More

Chose to go to Brooklyn via the Narrows rather than the Holland Tunnel and Manhattan Bridge to see the New York City skyline at night. It was worth going out of the way.
