After shopping in soho we decided to walk across the Manhattan Bridge rather then the BK Bridge because of the mass of tourists taking pictures every 2 feet. You have a great view of lower Manhattan and DUMBO. Plus you get to look into peoples...More

We walked to Brooklyn on the Brooklyn Bridge and back to Manhattan via the Manhattan Bridge. The Manhattan Bridge was much less crowded with pedestrians and bikes. It offered great views of the city and the Brooklyn Bridge without all the chaos.

The Manhattan bridge can be approached from Canal Street. This is bridge crosses into Brooklyn. Best route to downtown Brooklyn and Flatbush Avenue. Stunning bridge at night over the East River.

The Manhattan bridge is a great bridge and I am sure it would be higher ranked and more visited if it wasn't so close to the iconic Brooklyn bridge. It's a light blue bridge with two levels, the upper deck's for vehicles, while the lower...More

From the One World Observatory, we had a clear view of the Manhattan Bridge. The Manhattan Bridge is a suspension bridge that crosses the East River connecting Lower Manhattan at Canal Street with Downtown Brooklyn at the Flatbush Avenue Extension. It is a toll-free bridge.

Immediately I have to confess that if you only have time for one bridge walk then head to the Brooklyn Bridge... the views are spectacular and the bridge is really special. Now what about the Manhattan bridge... it doesn't have the beauty or majesty of...More

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
