The George Washington Bridge spans the Hudson River from Manhattan to New Jersey.

20th Century

The George Washington Bridge was damaged by the Sub-Mariner during his rampage through New York City in summer of 1940. He was prevented from completely demolishing the bridge by the Human Torch, who used his flame powers to send the Sub-Mariner fleeing into the Hudson River below.[3]

Modern Age

Daredevil arrived at the center of the Bridge to check out Jonathan Powers' announcement to reveal his secret identity and got into a scuffle with him. Making it seem as though Daredevil was trying to kill him, Powers then forced Daredevil to knock him off the bridge, where he secretly escaped aboard a submarine. With the body of Powers "lost", Daredevil was accused of murder and he fled the scene.[4]

The George Washington Bridge was reportidly rebuilt by Damage Control in a day, after city spent months trying to.[5]
