Do this for FREE by heading to Shore Parkway in Brooklyn. Do NOT drive to or cross over the bridge!!! Visit Coney Island, drive toward the bridge at sunset...AMAZING!

What a wonderful way to cross that bridge. Surrounded with thousands of other marathoners, you run that bridge. Try to enjoy the view, because it is reallyl worth it!

Great to take a trip across the bridge at sunset. Difficult to maneuver during rush hour. At least 90 minutes to commute into Brooklyn.

I have driven across this bridge countless times. Yet I never fail to marvel at the splendor of the magnificent views it affords. You can experience great views of the Narrows and the Harbor depending on the direction that you travel.

I was driving on south Belt Pkwy and I was glad to find out that almost underneath of the bridge there are free parking spots for driving by tourists. So you can just stop by here to take pictures, unwind and stretch your legs. Or...More

We crossed this double decked bridge on the bottom deck then later on our cruise ship sailed under it! How neat was that? She's a beauty, for sure!

In May of 2017 my friend and I rode in the 5 Boro Bike Tour, a 40 mile jaunt through all 5 boroughs of NYC. The final 3 miles happens over the Verrazano which is a long uphill climb, but the view is beautiful.

This a high bridge is a double-decked suspension bridge that connects the New York City boroughs of Staten Island and Brooklyn. You will pay a toll to cross this bridge via the EZPASS system.

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