    This bridge has a bike lane and pedestrian lane. Awesome if you want to enjoy the experience to see Manhattan or Brooklyn skyline!

    Underrated bridge. Less crowded than the Brooklyn Bridge. But too creepy and poorly lit for crossing at night.

    I definitely recommend making an effort to bike the north side of the bridge at least once and to walk the south side of the bridge at least once. Both are great ways to take in the City.

    It's definitely the least attractive of the 3 bridges, but that means less tourists! Very pleasant to run home across and a lovely view across the water of Manhattan.

    Commute from Brooklyn to Manhattan (or vice versa)? Go by bike for an easy way to add more physical activity to your daily routine. There's convenient stations on both sides of Manhattan Bridge.

    A lot less busy than Brooklyn bridge and what's better is that you can see Brooklyn Bridge from it! Both meet very close Brooklyn side so walk across one and back on the other for the best time.

    If you're on the B/D/Q headed into the city, take a look out of the right side of the train 20 sec before getting on the bridge. Graffiti + tunnel poles = awesome flipbook art
