Untapped New York invites you to their event

Secrets of the George Washington Bridge

About this event

  • Find out who really named the George Washington Bridge
  • Learn About New York City's Unsung Master Bridge Builder who designed the GWB but four others including the Verrazzano
  • Glance at the original Beaux Arts plans for the bridge scrapped right before construction
  • Discover how the Brooklyn Bridge and George Washington Bridge are intimately connected

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.
