Updating[edit]

Djflem (talk), the lead section of this article needs polishing, and I've started the process by explaining the basics, such as which country the topic of this article is located in and the locational context of the bridge that it supports. Remember that this is a global encyclopedia, not one for New Jersey or U.S. readers alone. I see you have a penchant for oversimplification as well. Not only that, but you can't put up an image that's clearly outdated (and therefore incorrect), and to add insult to injury, blurred. The blurred image shows the top of the Plaza no better than this one does, they're both equivalent in that respect, I checked before exchanging them; the first picture (both the clear and the blurred image) gives an overall correct, locational context, because the GWB Plaza is after all described as the GWB's western terminus in the text of the article itself.

If you want another image that clearly shows the top of the Plaza, then find a new one or simply don't show either; but to put up a clearly outdated picture is incorrect, and to have it additionally be blurred makes zero sense.

I suggest you take your discussion here rather than starting an edit war. Castncoot (talk) 18:09, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Coordinate error[edit]

{{geodata-check}}

The GWB Plaza is west of bridge. Djflem (talk) 13:43, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. Deor (talk) 14:37, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Photos[edit]

A photo showing situation of wester tower and buildings at GWB Plaza better illustrates subject of article Djflem (talk) 21:31, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Lane closures[edit]

Relevant in that the lane closures took place a GWB Plaza. Djflem (talk) 21:31, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Any need for distinguishing note?[edit]

Consensus has determine that GWB Bus Station is redundant. Djflem (talk) 21:31, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

There does not appear to be any need to distinguish between this article about a plaza in New Jersey and the George Washington Bridge Bus Station in New York. This issue was previously addressed through a series of back and forth edits and the consensus was there is no need for it since there should be no confusion about the NJ plaza, which is not a bus station, and the bus station in NY.
The recent back and forth edits still show consensus since there are more editors that agree with this original consensus. Wondering55 (talk) 22:15, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
Well, I'm sure that at least some people can be confused as to which bus station is on which side of the bridge. The hatnote clears that ambiguity up. Would a {{see also}} be more appropriate? Epicgenius (talk) 00:57, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
By the way, what "consensus" is being referred to here? Epicgenius (talk) 00:57, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
{{see also}} would be much better since both are utilized as transit hubs. The plaza is not a bus station, which is a physical building. Be bold and go for it. George Washington Bridge Bus Station can be similarly updated. You were part of the back and forth editing at the end of January where we went through this same issue and it was finally decided not to include the distinguishing note.

Yes check.svg Done with {{See also2}}, as {{see also}} doesn't really work for situations like this, Epicgenius (talk) 03:47, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
