    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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