    Don't cross that white solid line while under the tunnel for ANY reason! There are cameras all along the entire tunnel which will take a picture of your license plate and nail you with a huge ticket!!

    This little street has a few carriage houses directly over the tunnel entrance (the street itself is elevated as a sort-of "bridge") & London-style streetposts. Suss the history, O Detective!

    The cars may look different, but the sight of traffic is familiar! Take advantage of New York City's public transportation to avoid the congestion. Read more

    The right side of the tolls is usually less congested than the left. Everyone getting off of 139 usually stays to the left.

    Don't play the "hold-your-breath-until-the-end-of-the-tunnel" game or you're bound to suffocate and pass out. This tunnel is a non-stop traffic nightmare and a real bonafide shitshow. EVERY. TIME.

    Honk 3 times in quick succession when stopped by the trump soho building. Wait two second. Let out a two second long horn blast. Gwenndolinn the hooker will emerge and hop in the passenger seat.

    Tunnel underneath the Hudson River, connecting Manhattan and New Jersey; civil engineering landmark; one of the earliest ventilated tunnels

    Welcome to the Big Apple! Consider adding Harlem on your list of places to visit while you're here. You'll be glad you did!

    If you're on the bus and it's been more than five minutes, strangle the person sitting next to you, they're wasting your oxygen.

    When there's no traffic, super fast and easy but traffic can be rough. Definitely get that EZ Pass out.

    As you're driving through, imagine what it would be like if the tunnel burst and the Hudson River came roaring in.

    Best bridge if you want to come straight in the city!

    One of the most popular spots in the city. A bit lacking in charm. Smells like diesel!

    Go through the tunnel late at night when they clean it and see the upside down street sweeper contraption. Cool!

    From NJ, shoot for lanes 1 or 4, the left lane moves faster and merging is faster from the outer toll gates. From NY... Good luck.

    You'll be able to get through war and peace on tape before you even make it thru the tunnel - there's always so much damn traffic!

    do not travel via holland tunnel on Sunday night! After 5pm, it is jammed even after midnight! Use a different route if you can.

    If paying cash, stay n the far right lane, it always seems to move much quicker than the other Cash lane.

    A necessary evil, the Holland Tunnel is my vital link between urban excitement and suburban ennui.

    If you're here, you already know this is the best lane because of fewer alternate merges

    Just think - instead of being stuck in traffic, you could be enjoying the sun and the surf at Luna Park on Coney Island.

    EZPass tunnel rates are cheaper than cash.

    Avoid this tunnel at all costs, take the George Washington Bridge. The GWB is further north but when car breaks down in the two lane tunnel it doesn't get towed out causing a traffic jam for hours!

    Don't check in on Foursquare while you're entering a narrow underground tunnel!

    This "merge of death" isn't for the faint of heart... often the exterior toll lanes are the fastest.

    Stay to the outside lanes if you pay with cash, inside with EZ-Pass.

    Always stick to the left hand side. Avoid those deviants who cut you off....

    45 min delays at the Holland, but still moves faster & more comfortable than the Lincoln.

    If ez pass go on far left 2 lanes since only 4 lanes become 1 vs the right side
