Is San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge longer than New York’s Verrazano-Narrows Bridge?

No. The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge (constructed in 1959-64) has a center span of 4,260 feet and an overall length of 13,700 feet. The towers are a few inches out of parallel to accommodate the curvature of the earth. In comparison, The George Washington Bridge (constructed in 1927-31) is 3,500 feet long.
