All things being equal, I prefer the upper deck of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, especially on a sunny morning like yesterday's. The view out over South Beach to the Atlantic is a winner. But when I saw the trucks backed up at the approach, I knew I'd better take the low road. (Trucks aren't allowed on the lower deck.) Something was holding up traffic up there: When I got to the other side, not a vehicle was approaching the toll plaza.
