    Fun to walk across even in the cold and rain. Look for the gold dome of the state house. Great views!

    Bridge shakes when T goes over. Will take three years to rehab bridge!

    The speed limit is 30. Trust me. Or don't; the Staties will inform you when they pull you over in Cambridge.

    The Viking statues were commissioned by Eben Horsford, a Harvard professor who believed Vikings colonized Boston 500 years before the Puritans. He also invented baking powder.

    The best view on the northern section of the Red Line. Actually the only view as the entire run other than this is underground.

    Don't jump! It's not worth it. Plus the distance is to short.

    It's true, there's a great view from this bridge, but I think the Mass Ave bridge is better

  • Kyle J.

    On a nice day it's the best view of Boston. Walk across (recommended) on the side near the Museum of Science for less traffic and wider sidewalk. Of course the other side has the better view.

    Kyle James · May 1, 2010

    A better place to walk than to be trapped on the T.
