If you look at Buffalo, NY, you’ll notice it’s opposit to New York City. New York City is not in an island, but it faces one (Long Island), and it’s surrounded by water on three sides too.

As you can see in this picture, if you are coming through the Atlantic Ocean, you’ll see the Statue of Liberty, and the wall of Manhattan skyscrapers will greet you.

The George Washington Bridge, a suspension bridge, was once the longest in the world before Golden Gate. Now, Golden Gate ranks 14 longest, and George Washington 29 longest. Still a beautiful bridge to behold.
