    Strangely gets bottled up exiting on the Manhattan side. Avoided the annoyance and take a right on 62nd even if you are going West.

    Try walking across on a nice day. Goes from 60th St in Manhattan to near the Queensbrough stop in Queens.

    There's a single outer driving lane on the south side of the bridge, with East River views unobstructed by the bridge's truss structure. Enter eastbound at 59th St and 1st Av.

    This double-decker pathway (also known as the 59th Street Bridge) is a popular biking and running loop for athletes based on either side of the East River.

    Early morning traffic and after work travel fastest way - ride between cars - drivers will move

    The Queensboro Bridge plays a central role in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises as the last remaining route to escape Gotham and the fate that Bane has in store for it.

    Avoid the upper roadway when driving a scooter. The road is all ridged metal grates. Death!
