The Williamsburg Bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world when it opened in 1903, and the first with all-steel towers. The 310-foot steel towers support four cables, each measuring 18 inches in diameter and weighing 4,344 tons.
Check out the pedestrian bridge connecting the bike and pedestrian walkways on either side and get a great view of the trains passing below!
You can get some fantastic photographs here. #wwim11nyc was here!
Great for a late night run
Its what connects us
Awesome running path
The 1st bridge I ever knew. I love crossing this bridge and reminiscing of years past.
Great views, even from the subway.
Check out the street art graffiti
Scenic views of the city ❤
Great views, graffiti, and traffic is spilt between bikes/runners and walkers. Smart.
Stay in your own lane
Pretty in Pink.
La Vista es hermosa ❤️
Pink bridge for nice pink photos.
Look mom, no tolls.
Great for runs, you have your own lane!
The east river isn't really a river. #ShitYouDidntKnow
Just come see the wine bars and restaurants and galleries and stores from LES west ti the Hudson River.
Hot ppl up here
Right pedestrian lane is for cyclers, if you walk there they could be sometimes bit crazy. The left is for pedestrians only.
On the eastern side there is an interesting Jewish Hassidic neighborhood nearby.
Great views of the Manhattan skyline.

ALWAYS TRAFFIC HEADING TO THE CITY
Use inside lane !
invent your own signature position. you have a signature scent, so why not this? Then give it a code name!
Take after dark. Avoid bike lane.
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.
walking back to manhatten
Our favorite way to get across: taking the M train, where there's cell service and great views!
Barba ya, anteojos ya, creo que ya puedo ser vecino de esta zona!
The view by night is breathtaking
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.
Justin is PHENOMENAL. Color, cut and an awesome 0erson. Triple threat!
Warning. Don't walk on the north side bike lane! South side has pedestrian path so you won't get ran over. :)
Send your last texts and tweets before you hit essex street on the Manhattan bound J and Z trains
Police checkpoint at the first exit, Broadway at night during the Summer.
Beautiful bridge!! Beautiful view too
Take Allen north and 2nd ave south NEVER take Bowery, 14th or Houston
Has its ups and downs. Also, a bit wet underneath.
Coming over the bridge? Walk a block up to RIVINGTON 151 for a drink! Open late everyday
Love the view of the city from here!!
Awesome skyline views-but pay attention to your driving!
Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy the view!
great walking bridge connecting two cultural hubs - the lower east side and bedford 'hipster' avenue.
try the graffiti and street art - you won't be disappointed. best time to walk over is during golden hour as the sun begins to see. amazing photography.
Lots of joggers along the East River. Also nice for just a stroll. Wonderful view on the bridge.
