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

    Thanks for being one of the 140,000 drivers, 92,000 transit riders, 6,000 bikers or 500 pedestrians who use the Willy B every day! If you’re one of the drivers, put your phone down.

    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.

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

    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.

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

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

    Walkers on the south side passageway only. Don't walk on the north side path or do and get clipped.

    Walk up an appetite for Williamsburg while viewing the East River. The bridge is 1.3 miles long, cross to the opposite path once halfway to switch the view. - Green Guide Editor

    Walk up an appetite for Williamsburg while taking in the East River. Dress appropriately: the bridge is 1.3 miles long and can be cool. Cross to the opposite path once halfway to switch the view.

    If you have just a few days in the city, don’t bother. If you have plenty of time, you can just walk through mid-east Manhattan until you reach the East River Park. Read more
