    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!!

    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

    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.

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

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

    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.

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

    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!

    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.

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

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

    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!

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

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