There's nothing like the boom of that cannon on marathon morning, feeling the bridge shake under your feet from the rhythm of 40,000 runners, and watching the fireboat spout off its fanfare down below. only 25 more miles to go!

Crossing the bridge brings me so many good memories. I loved crossing underneath and across. I wish I had taken more pictures, great spot.

A functional way to get from Brooklyn to Staten Island, but can get crowded and confusing. Especially coming from Brooklyn, where the approach ramps to the upper and lower levels were switched until construction is complete. An expensive toll, even if it is collected only...More

Those not driving will get great views from the upper deck, outer lanes especially headed to Staten Island, since the Manhattan Skyline will be visible. Even in the rain the view can be atmospheric.

It is the easiest access from Staten Island to Brooklyn. At rush hour the traffic can be pretty horrendous, but it is like that at other major bridges.

A pleasant surprise during a visit to Staten Island. Magnificent bridge, worthy a visit if you are near it. Otherwise you can skip, specially if you have seen the other bridges (Brooklyn, etc).

Are you traveling from West Orange, NJ to Brooklyn? Take the Verrazano---it is way less stressful of a drive compared to the tunnel.

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