On our roadtrip earlier this week, we traveled the George Washington Bridge between New Jersey and New York. (All pictures taken from the Roadtrek passenger window.)
Somewhere along the line on this free-form roadtrip, we decided to try to avoid the big cities. One of the reasons is that Cities take a lot of planning! And a lot of time to see them properly. And the other reason is that one of our travel goals has always been to sleep in every State. We thought we'd have a better chance of accomplishing that if we avoided the cities for now.
So we intentionally missed Washington DC when we were in Virginia -- and this week, traveling from New Jersey to Connecticut, we just bypassed New York City. (We have been there before, in our other life -- pre-retirement, pre-RV -- for a too-short visit; we do hope to come back someday.) Above is the Manhattan Skyline.
The George Washington Bridge spans the Hudson River connecting New Jersey and New York. It is the most heavily-traveled bridge in the country and the expressway that it is on is the most heavily traveled road. So it was lucky I had time to shoot a few pictures. (That's because the other person in the car was doing the heavy work -- both driving and navigating the traffic. I did help watch for lane and exit signs -- in between taking pictures.)
This is the Bronx; we think those are housing projects.
