Happy Birthday Holland Tunnel

The Holland Tunnel opened on November 13, 1883. It was the first fixed vehicular crossing between New York and New Jersey. The first non official through the Holland Tunnel was a truck making a delivery to Bloomingdale's. The toll was $.50 and the tunnel cost 48 million to build. As of 2003 the tunnel has made 378,057,000 million. The tunnel was named after Clifford Milburn Holland, the designer of the tunnel.

    I just read that it now costs $8 cash for a car. Eastbound only. Free the other way.
