    Nice walk and view of the manhattan - recommend the walk at sunset so you can have a scenic view of the city with the bright lights in the evening

    During the day, this can be more quiet and pleasant than the Brooklyn Bridge. At night it's creepy though — bad lighting

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