Never mind then, and carry on.
Although the gridlock is so much worse on 3rd for the bridge than it is for the tunnel.

That's the idea. At my age if I get my legs crushed I'd never walk right again.

It's very common to see people texting, applying make up, or fiddling with whatever when their attention should be on driving the car.

Oh I don't know... Have found the traffic on Second from the 60's to the approach to bridge much worse than anything below (tunnel).

The gridlock on 3rd between 55th to 58th seems to be constant as is the gridlock on 2nd from 60 down to 58th.

The tunnel seems to do a good job of diverting the gridlock into the midblock streets although at times 36th can be jammed pack between 3rd and 2nd.

Problem all have in common is what one mentioned in a previous post; you have large numbers of drivers on city streets/avenues using them as access roads, which they were never designed.


Because the FDR does not allow commercial/truck traffic you have all such vehicles on Third, Second and First o either get to Queens and points east.


Nine times out of ten the back up in traffic is caused by drivers blocking the box so when lights change traffic cannot move. This applies to traffic going west bound (coming off) and east bound (going to) the East River crossings.


Traffic on Second (and First along with Third for that matter) going to the 59th Street Bridge is heavy because the thing is free. Which to me is why there always seems to be more traffic going to/coming off the Queensboro bridge than the Midtown tunnel.
