Don't get me wrong, I love the new bridge. I paid attention to the progress of the construction. But it's still the Tappan Zee, a nod to the original people of the area.
Same here , it will always be the Tappan Zee for me as well.

When there is traffic, there are places in NJ where it would be faster to take the Tappan Zee than the GWB to places in the northern bronx (Montvale, Park Ridge, Northvale, etc). However, those places are also FURTHER from the bronx than places close to the Bridge. To put it another way, if you lived in Montvale and drove at 8am, you would take the Tappan Zee, but if you lived in River Edge, you would take the bridge, but your commute from River Edge would likely be shorter, even in traffic, and would DEFINITELY be shorter if there was no traffic (say on a sunday morning).

Also remember that the Tappan Zee and the GWB both have very high tolls! There goes a bunch of your property tax savings.

Nope, the TZ toll is far lower than the GWB. Remember that the TZ was built a few hundred feet north of the Port Authority's district (there's no other logical reason to build a bridge on the second-widest part of the Hudson) to keep it part the NYS Thruway Authority's system.

EZ-pass toll for the TZ is $4.75, which EZ-pass toll for the GWB during peak is $13.75, off-peak $11.75.

Right, sorry. Still more tolls than NOT taking it at all. Just something to add to the equation
