The George Washington Bridge stands high above
The Hudson River, its eastern end resting on
The shores of Manhattan, its western end embedded
In the wooded bluffs of New Jersey's Palisades
Twice as long as any previous suspension bridge
It was the marvel of its time...
Spanning the Hudson River challenged engineers
For over 100 years before Othmar Ammann
Proposed a bridge design in 1923 and
Construction began in October of 1927
"The George" has a 3,500-foot center span
Suspended between two 570-foot steel towers
It is the most traveled bridge in the world
Did he really say that?
