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

    Walk across for some of the best views of lower Manhattan

    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.

    A beautiful bridge with a beautiful view and a lot less crowded than that other bridge next to it.

    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.

    First time and loved it 😗
    Historic Buildings, the Manhattan Bridge, and the Empire State Building in the distance: you can't leave DUMBO without taking in this iconic photo opportunity at Washington Street and Water Street.

    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.

    Mush safer for bike-riding than the Brooklyn Bridge, but not as picturesque.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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
