    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.

    Мост заслуживает не меньшего внимания чем Бруклинский. Со стороны Бруклина есть тот самый вид из фильма "Однажды в Америке"

    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

    The views of the Brooklyn Bridge and lower Manhattan are outstanding however the chain link fence along the entire pedestrian path prevents any good photos.
