    Traffic can send you around, but one of the best views of the Manhattan skyline.

    If you're stuck on the bridge going in or out of the city & think it's a good time to catch some Pokemon, good luck they almost never appear.

    It's a bridge. It goes over the East River. It has bike and pedestrian lanes.

    Axel said this one is nicer to walk, since the view was better and you end up in a better place in Brooklyn!

    Running over it is difficult because of the incline at the beginning (Brooklyn side), but it's a very satisfying and scenic route.

    Walk on one side, bike on the other. Pedestrians stay out of the bike lane--there are a couple blind corners.

    Confusing to find the walkway but it's near bedford and s 5th st. Quick and easy walk; perfect on a nice day.

    The view is not that great and the fencing doesn't help. A better bet is the Manhattan Bridge which had an excellent view.

    Great views, graffiti, and traffic is spilt between bikes/runners and walkers. Smart.

    Right pedestrian lane is for cyclers, if you walk there they could be sometimes bit crazy. The left is for pedestrians only.

    Senior Community Manager Ed crosses this bridge daily on his bike, but also loves to pause and take in the street art and occasional sunset whenever possible.

    Great walk. Great view of the city. Great vibe. Beautiful people. Do yourself a favor and enjoy the 25 minute walk across the bridge. Coming into Manhattan is the best part.
