Traffic was so bad that it took us an hour and a half to get from Queens to Staten Island, about 11 miles.
In between being freaked out because:
A. For some reason every overpass is marked with a height of 12'9" (we are 13'6"). Even though I know those signs are lying bastards, I duck my head in fear of being decapitated every time.
B. The traffic in NYC is very aggressive, almost as bad as New Jersey and people dart, weave and cut in front of us trying to give me a heart attack on purpose. (yes the world revolves around me and it is trying kill me)
I had time to take lots of pictures. And now I will take you on a virtual tour of NYC traffic because I am generous like that. You. Are. Welcome.
|Oops. Too much traffic for the|
George Washington Bridge.
So we headed south to
the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.
|How come all those buildings|
don't sink Manhattan?
|Historic Calvary Cemetery.|
Aunt Jemima is buried there.
|Ugh. Traffic this way too.|
|A tree grows in Brooklyn.|
|Huh. I thought Broadway would|
be a lot more glittery.
Or at least Neil Patrick Harris-y.
|She said yes.|
|Example of a 12'9" lie.|
|One World Trade Center|
|Approaching the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.|
|It was the Verrazano Bridge that played a|
prominent role in Saturday Night Fever.
Trivial Pursuit got it wrong.
|View from the top of the bridge.|
|Ft. Wadsworth, one of America's oldest|
Also homebase to G.I. Joe.
|Ahh, the final NYC bridge for us,|
Our trailer is nano inches from the railing.
That sucker is narrow.
|Yay! We made it out of New York.|
Crap. Now we're in New Jersey.
