    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.

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

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

    Not bad going into Manhattan, but always traffic on the BQE. And unless you're a hipster, you don't want to go to Williamsburg.
