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

    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.

    You can only walk over the north side of the bridge. Gives you a good view of the tram and Roosevelt Island, but not so much of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Been crossing for years though...always nice.
