The George Washington Bridge Bus Station is a fine example of mid-century architecture. Designed by Italian engineer Pier Luigi Nervi, the station in Washington Heights opened in 1963.
The building features a winged overhang over the main entrance.
The roof is a series of structures that allow light and air in — and also expels the carbon monoxide from the buses.
The George Washington Bridge Bus Station is currently undergoing a $180 million renovation that will revitalize the station. And with 90,000 square feet of new retail space, it could become the hub of the entire neighborhood.
