RMS Queen Mary 2 passes under the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge while entering New York Harbor after my transatlantic cruise!
Amalfitano Family. Afternoon spent on Shore Road, Brooklyn NY. July of 1963. Baby is me, John . Michael 5 y/o. Jerry Jr. 8 y/o. Our Mother and Father are Mary and Jerry Amalfitano. The Verrazano Narrows Bridge is seen being built in this footage. Cable spinning. No roadbed in place as of yet. President, John F. Kennedy was assassinated 4 months after this film was recorded.
Behold the Epic as she passes beneath NYC's VN bridge on her inaugural voyage. Not quite the mere 24 inches of her arrival in New York, but still close enough to wow the crowd. Shot from the highest accessible point on the ship: the top of the stairs to the water slides.
Me and my son Jason hitting about 30 mph. Could've gone faster, but the Marshals frown upon that, too crowded!
Queen Mary sailing out of New York - transatlantic crossing, 31 May, 2009. It was an amazing experience sailing under the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, and I've attempted to capture a sense of how it felt - both wonderful and dramatic. I know there's not a lot of footage of the ship in this video - and that's by intent. I wanted to create a film that communicated in some way the strangely contradictory feeling of sailing on a truly massive ship, with almost no sense of actual motion. If you want to see actual images of the ship, then there are other videos in my library that will show you interiors and exteriors. This film is about motion and the physical experience of sailing under the Verrazano Narrows Bridge - less the ship. Though, of course, the Queen Mary is a significant character in this film as she served as the platform from which the total experience played out. The music I've selected was a deliberate choice. I've always been impressed by this particular track by Rabbit in the Moon. 'Deeper' has an almost cinematic, trance-like quality to it - which seemed ideally suited to this film.

myworldtravel.weebly.com Verrazano Narrows Bridge from john paul jones park in brooklyn PLEASE SUBSCRIBE History The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge is a double-decked suspension bridge that connects the boroughs of Staten Island and Brooklyn in New York City at the Narrows, the reach connecting the relatively protected upper bay with the larger lower bay. The bridge is named for Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano, the first known European navigator to enter New York Harbor and the Hudson River, while crossing The Narrows. It has a center span of 4260 feet (1298 m) and was the largest suspension bridge in the world at the time of its completion in 1964, until it was surpassed by the Humber Bridge in the United Kingdom in 1981. It now has the eighth longest center span in the world, and is the largest suspension bridge in the United States. Its massive towers can be seen throughout a good part of the New York metropolitan area, including from spots in all five boroughs of New York City. The bridge furnishes a critical link in the local and regional highway system. It is the starting point of the New York City Marathon. The bridge marks the gateway to New York Harbor; all cruise ships and most container ships arriving at the Port of New York and New Jersey must pass underneath the bridge and thus must be built to accommodate the clearance under the bridge. This is most notable in the case of the ocean liner RMS Queen Mary 2. The bridge is owned by New York City and operated ...

The Caribbean Princess cruise ship passes beneath the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge on August 4, 2009. It had left the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal just before this video was taken. The cruise itinerary's ports of call were West End, Bermuda; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, USA Virgin Islands; and Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos Islands. The cruise was on Princess Cruises, and began and ended at Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Brooklyn, NYC, NY. The Verrazano bridge is one of the world's largest suspension bridges. The clearance beneath it has a maximum height of around 220 feet. The bridge crosses the Narrows in the New York Harbor between the boroughs of Brooklyn and Staten Island in New York City, and is part of Route I-278. The Narrows, which the bridge crosses divides the Upper and Lower New York Bay. I was thinking that the captain was going to blow the horn, but he did not. I have been on cruises before where the horn was indeed blown when sailing under bridges.

Driving across the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge from Brooklyn to Staten Isdland. Yeah, I am kind of diappointed by the video stability on the Zi6 camera. See what you think. I haven't yet figured out how to add captions to this format. When it opened in 1964, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge was the world's longest suspension span. The ends of the bridge are at historic Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn and Fort Wadsworth in Staten Island, both of which guarded New York Harbor at the Narrows for over a century. The bridge was named after Giovanni da Verrazano, who, in 1524, was the first European explorer to sail into New York Harbor. Its monumental 693 foot high towers are 1 5/8 inches farther apart at their tops than at their bases because the 4260 foot distance between them made it necessary to compensate for the earth's curvature. Each tower weighs 27000 tons and is held together with three million rivets and one million bolts. Seasonal contractions and expansions of the steel cables cause the double-decked roadway to be 12 feet lower in the summer than in the winter. Located at the mouth of upper New York Bay, the bridge not only connects Brooklyn with Staten Island but is also a major link in the interstate highway system, providing the shortest route between the middle Atlantic states and Long Island. In Brooklyn, the bridge connects to the Belt Parkway and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and to the largely residential community of Bay Ridge. On Staten Island, which saw rapid ...

Heading back to NJ from NYC we do a close fly by over the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. For a second it looked like we passed a little close to it. Video was shot 25 years ago from a camcorder the size of a briefcase (then, the latest technology). View is from a Cessna 172 SkyHawk.

I made this one with the chopper a little closer to the WTC than in "Verrazano-Narrows Bridge Simulation". My suspicion is that the chopper (or virtual chopper) was over the Hudson river roughly equidistant from the WTC and the Empire State building. I've also allowed the viewer to keep the WTC more or less in the centre of the screen to try and replicate the "authentic" footage that was shown live on Sept 11th 2001. With this newer position and a better attempt to simulate the motion of a helicopter I'm still finding that the WTC in the "authentic" footage looks too small and that the Verrazano-Narrows bridge looks too long and seems to be rendered from the wrong angle given that the chopper was in Manhattan at the time.
