    A trip to NYC is incomplete if you did not walk/cycle across the bridge. You can take lots of cool photos and timelapse videos here. It might get a bit chilly and windy, take a light jacket with you.

    Iconic, but also very annoying and stressful to visit thanks to the tourists blocking the way and to the rude runners pushing you to the bike lane.

    Pay attention to the walking and biking lanes. Bikers will hit you. Don't stop to take bad pictures of the city either. Pay $40 for a 2 hour boat cruise with much better views

    For a better view, you've got to walk from the Brooklyn side towards Manhattan. 😃 (and respect the walking/bike lanes...)
