I wonder if there is a sign showing the mileage for San Francisco on the eastern end of Interstate 80.

I drove on the I-95 in Florida, so weird to see the same signs, but completely different surroundings. And to know that your pics have been taken so many miles away, but still close to the same road.

But just thinking about driving the whole lenght of I-95 makes me sleepy!

The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge (Interstate 278) in New York City turns 45 today!

It opened in 1964. A second deck was added in 1969 for a grand total of 12 lanes of traffic. It carries 195,000 vehicles per day.

A bigpicture view on the Verrazano Narrows Bridge in the foreground, intersecting with the Belt Parkway. In the center of the picture, near those two apartment towers in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, the Gowanus Expressway intersects with the Belt Parkway.

Other visible locations/landmarkts are the Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Heights and the Empire State Building.

Interchange of the Belt Parkway and Gowanus Expressway (I-278) in Brooklyn. The Gowanus Expressway was built in between 1939 and 1941 on an existing elevated structure previously used for a railroad. It was widened in the 50's to six lanes and passes by buildings very close.

No offense, but that welcome sign reeks of blandness.

Which sucks even worse because NY actually has one of my favorite welcome signs, the one with the Statue of Liberty on it.

The Statue of Liberty isn't yours , thats why the signs were changed. Its ours , New Jersey Sued New York in the 1990s over this issue and we won.

Hmm, I thought Ellis and Liberty Islands were exclaves of Manhattan Borough.

The Statue of Liberty is on an island that's part of NY state but it is "within" NJ's border and is much closer to the NJ mainland than it is to New York's. Of course Lady Liberty also has her backside turned toward Jersey.

There both in NJ and always have been , there one of the most visited landmarks in Jersey City. The Main Ferry to get to both is in Jersey City. When Ellis Island had a Fire & Security scare last week , Jersey City PD and Swat and Fire Responded , not NYC. Its sad NYC claimed as theres , it was never. Jersey City has big plans for the Liberty Terminal , it used be a train station and it was abandoned in the 1960s , now there going to turn it into a Market and Museum. Jersey City is now a major City , its = to NYC in Construction Projects , with over 40 to 70 going on Now , 3 Skyscrapers. There are plans to Put something under I-78 , most likely a Park. I-78 has a Skyway in Jersey City , it rises 4 stories above the streets. And provides stunning views of The Jersey City Skyline , i posted about the Skyway a few pages back, only the Westbound Roadway which is only 2 stories high. I think New York State Signs should have Niagara Falls , Wineries, and NYC skyline , the new NJ Signs are great looking but small compared to other states , except on the Tollways , where there big , even some Railways have signs

Wikipedia has details:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ellis_Island

In actuality New York has all of Ellis Island except the portions which were created by landfill. New Jersey successfully argued that the landfill portions are within NJ. But neither state is actually able to levy taxes on Ellis Island because it is wholly owned by the federal government and there is a convention in the US that no governmental jurisdiction levies tax on others.

There is a bridge (now closed) between Jersey City and Ellis Island.

Liberty Island, on the other hand, is wholly in New York and is part of New York City.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberty_Island

Again, because all land on it is owned by the federal government, none of it is taxed.

There both in NJ , since i live here , i would know. There is about 200 to 290 feet before the New York Line , if you go to The park and ask which state owns it They'll say New Jersey. Liberty State Park is on the New Jersey side , NYC has no park , that is associated with Lady Liberty & Ellis Island. And don't trust Wikipedia on that dept , you have to visit there to get the actually correct answer The Bridge isn't Closed , its only for Workers and Maintenance.

I am going to trust Wikipedia on this one. It does say that the dry land of Liberty Island is New York territory in New Jersey waters, which makes Liberty Island a classic exclave since it is surrounded by New Jersey but not part of it. Liberty State Park is just that--a state park. The Statue of Liberty and associated grounds is a federal monument. And the bridge in question is effectively closed if it is open only to maintenance vehicles.

The Wikipedia article on Liberty Island has a section which explains why people mistakenly believe Liberty Island is part of New Jersey.

I think that those signs were made in this decade though.

If you think that Liberty Island is in New Jersey, then it is perhaps not surprising that you think Wikipedia is full of inaccuracies. I won't disagree that it has some errors but this is not one of them.

If you don't trust Wikipedia, how about Google Maps? It clearly shows that Liberty Island is in New York.

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Statue...04823&t=h&z=18

It also shows clearly that different parts of Ellis Island are in New York and New Jersey.

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Statue...04823&t=h&z=18

The fact that you live in New Jersey, and have visited the Statue of Liberty seven times, does not mean you are right. You are not.

Edit: See also this map of Community District 1 in Manhattan (Chris was right--Liberty Island and the New York portion of Ellis Island are administratively part of Manhattan):

http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/pdf/lucds/mn1profile.pdf

Edit (again): A 1998 New York Times article (republished on a private website) adds to the evidence pile:

http://www.endex.com/gf/buildings/liberty/eiowner.htm

Edit (yet again): Found full text and a map of the Supreme Court's decision of May 21, 1998, in New Jersey v. New York, 526 US 589 et seqq. (page 701 of 1198 in the PDF file):

http://www.supremecourtus.gov/opinio...umes/526bv.pdf

The map attached to the decision bears the chopmarks of NJDOT and the NJ Geodetic Survey, is sealed by a PE registered in NJ, and shows clearly that of the 27.485 acres total land area of Ellis Island, 22.802 acres is in New Jersey while 4.683 acres is in New York.

There is unfortunately not a citeable Supreme Court decision to the effect that Liberty Island is in New York, because New Jersey has never litigated otherwise. But make no mistake: on Liberty Island you are in New York.
