The Pulaski Skyway is definitely one of the more standout features of the skyline in that area.

Hard to believe it's been there for almost a century!

@#1 ... The Pulaski Skyway is definitely one of the more standout features of the skyline in that area. ...

Yup.

It's a major thoroughfare in the area for cars. It is US1/9 in the area, US1 and US9 share the same pavement for a stretch in the area.

I used to drive on it a lot, as it was a part of the route from my home at the time to college in Hoboken, NJ.

Fun road to drive on (your definition of "fun" may vary...).

Back when it was built, speed limits were a lot lower and lanes did not have to be wide. A Jersey Barrier ( en.wikipedia.org ) was the only thing between you and oncoming traffic.

Back in the day, I knew. My college friends and I talked about it. But over the years, the brain cells containing those memories have been repurposed.

I object. This article makes Italian American bias worse. They should let Mr Hoffa rest in peace. Just yesterday someone asked me if I knew Hoffa because both of us are certainly in the mafia.
My answer was AH FOUND GOLD..

Even though transporting Hoffa's remains from MI to NJ to dispose of them seems a stretch, I doubt there's a manual for this sort of frolic. Must be why I can't help landing on the "Sopranos" opening scene (youtu.be), Tony driving by Satriale's.
