George Washington Bridge

The George Washington Bridge seen from Hudson Heights, one of the highest land elevations in Manhattan. The bridge opened in 1931 and connects Manhattan with New Jersey, spanning the mighty Hudson River. The high land elevations on both sides of the GW Bridge offers some unique perspectives compared to other suspension bridges. While the towers rise above street level the suspended portion of the bridge is at or slightly above street level. This shot was taken from street level just north of the bridge.
