I am aquainted with the history of New York City. There is an error on the George Washington Bridge picture on page 105.Picture caption says in effect that prior to Bridge, traffic from the west had to either use a ferry or a railroad. Incorrect. The Holland Tunnel opened in 1927,which is not mentioned anywhere.
