The first suspension bridge built on deflection theory, the Manhattan Bridge opened to traffic in 1909. The American Society of Civil Engineers named the bridge a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. The bridge has been going under an extensive $834 million reconstruction since 1982.
Just a bridge
It's a fine bridge. It does what a bridge should do.
Arguably the best bridge view in the city from the walking lane (south side of bridge). Great as a running loop with BK Bridge too.
Love the place
Mush safer for bike-riding than the Brooklyn Bridge, but not as picturesque.
It's a bridge.
Very bridge, such traffic.
I think people would traverse this bridge even more if the Brooklyn side featured easier accessibility to eateries and shops.
There's a separate side of the bridge for cyclists. Let them know if they're on the pedestrian path.
Take the train over it!
Walkway is fun and has fantastic views during late fall sunset.
Pretty scenic but do NOT go on Sundays unless you're a happy family with infants or toddlers.
One of the ugliest NYC crossings to walk through but on the upside has a great view of Brooklyn Bridge at sunset.
Momma is going to home🙆🏼
Least amount of pedestrian, bike, and car traffic between Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Incredible views !
I set up races in my head between trains and cars. See who wins.
Probably my second favorite bridge in NY. Not too long and not too high.
The best view on the DUMBO side of the bridge. Catch the ferry there in the summer and have lunch at Shake Shack or under the archway of the bridge, where you can devour amazing food truck food!
Love this bridge.
love the view of the city
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.
Beautiful breathtaking the sites
Nyc needs major work on streets and bridges! #potholecountry
If you walk to Brooklyn take the right side to get a great view of the Brooklyn bridge and lower Manhattan
Love the view of the city
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.
Gets you from point a to b. Good bridge a+++ will ride again
Not as iconic as the Brooklyn bridge, but still has great views of the city ❤
Pretty bridge and usually fast with no issues everytime I go over it. It's nice to just open the window and take it everything driving into Manhattan the city that never sleeps.
Beautiful view in any kind of weather.
One side for cyclists and the other for pedestrians. People are assholes and will yell at you if you are on wrong side
Not as breathtaking as The Brooklyn Bridge but this is truly a beautiful & iconic piece of engineering.Rush hour traffic is hell! Enjoy the view and take pics if you can but don't check in & drive!
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
One of the best view of the Brooklyn Bridge can be seen from here.
Decent views altho the Brooklyn Bridge is much nicer.
Try the bridge
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.
One of the easiest/nicest ways to see this is to take a subway ride over it!
Best bridge to commute from Brooklyn
I love this scenery! I love NYC! I was born to be a New Yorker!
Right into Chinatown and Little Italy.
The B, D, N, and Q subways all cross the Manhattan Bridge - enjoy the above-ground cell service while you have it!
much better for running than the BK bridge, but be careful cuz its like the I-95 of bicycling
Beautiful view of the Brooklyn bridge, the Harbor and NYC.
C'mon guys just walk....
Make sure to watch out for the traffic & avoid the tourists sight seeing!
