About This Tour:
It’s the busiest roadway in the United States and of all the bridges in New York City, it went up the fastest. From its initial conception down in midtown to its Beaux Arts stone facade conceived by Cass Gilbert, no bridge had morphed so dramatically from concept to completion. Join Untapped New York’s Chief Experience Justin Rivers as he continues his series exploring the secrets of New York City’s iconic infrastructure. Not only will you learn the secrets of the Great Gray Bridge, he’ll even throw in the beloved Little Red Lighthouse as well.
