Metro North train stops a short walk from the center. Problem solved.

It did not prove to be very long-lasting, as bridges go. Did NY cut corners on its original construction, or fail to maintain it?

Material shortages during Korean War, so it was built cheaply. I guess they took a lot of short cuts. I believe when they built it, it was planned to last 50 years and it lasted over 60 years. Now you would think government would have saved 10 cents from every toll collected to cover at least some of the cost of building a new bridge. Wishful thinking to have a government that plans for the future...

From the north Bear Mountain Bridge is an alternative and a pretty drive. From the south there's always GWB but that toll will get ya.

How are you Andrew?

My route from the North is Taconic to 287 which lets me off about 2 exits away from the show. Very convenient and not much traffic.
