George Washington BridgePosted: January 10, 2009
I wanted to share with everyone something I experience everyday, the George Washington Bridge or as it is known around here, the Geee Double U. (Say it fast). Without this wonderful bridge I could not live upstate and work in Manhattan. Well me and few million other people.
I found a little history on the GW:
After reading this post, some of you are probably franticly trying to figure out how you too can experience crossing this steel work of art. One might be inclined to hop on a plane, fly out of San Diego International, sit on a plane for 5 hours, land in JFK, hop into a waiting cab and demand to be taken to New Jersey via the Gee Double You. “Take me to Fort Lee New Jersey on the double!!” you would shout in joyful glee to the friendly cabbie that smells like cury. No need my dear readers. I have a video in my possesion that will allow you to experience twhat only a select few million of us get to share. A video of me crossing the Hudson on the lower level early in the morning on my way to work. Why the lower level? The upper level backs up alot more than the lower level, plus less of a merge getting onto the FDR drive, but that is a whole other post. The video is a little shaky in the beginning..than stabilizes. Filming, shifting gears, watching for traffic, keeping the camera steady..a talent than can not be taught my friends, one must be born with it.
