Flint writes, page 70: "The George Washington Bridge crosses the Hudson River, linking upper Manhattan and New Jersey. The two arched steel towers, as yet uncompleted in 1929, were intended to be encased eventually in stone. The bridge finall opened to traffic in 1931 and, until completion of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay and Golden Gate bridges, was recognized as the largest suspension structure in the world. "
