    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.

    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.

    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.

    Abigail Argersinger · August 10, 2015

    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.

    If you walk to Brooklyn take the right side to get a great view of the Brooklyn bridge and lower Manhattan

    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 ❤

    Kimmie Ohh · October 12, 2014

    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.

    Eddie · September 19, 2014

    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

    Richard Dinh · August 16, 2014
  • Yanique

    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!

    Yanique · August 7, 2014
  • Varun S.

    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

    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.

    Charles Petkanas · December 22, 2013
  • Liz D.

    One of the easiest/nicest ways to see this is to take a subway ride over it!

    The B, D, N, and Q subways all cross the Manhattan Bridge - enjoy the above-ground cell service while you have it!
