Comment on My Grandpa Versus Yours: Who Really Wrote the George Washington Bridge Song? by Adrian A. Durlester No ratings yet.

    Episode Description:

    Oh, also, as a historical point of reference: I sang this song in my youth, not only as a car passenger, but on buses going to the Pearl River location of the YM&YWHA day camps from the various Ys. around anhattan and the Bronx. It was sung en masse by the campers every time we crossed the bridge. Just a few years back, in 2011, I worked as a music specialist for the 92nd St Y camp, and again rode the buses from Manhattan to Pearl River all summer long, and campers were still singing the song, though with slightly revised words “George Washington Bridge. George is washing the Washington Bridge.”
