The hanging overshadow of Brooklyn Bridge makes this foul smelling noisy bridge a less favourite among.

Walking the lesser known Manhattan Bridge is a cool thing to do. It's worth it for the views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline. Its a huge bridge so expect to walk over a mile (one way). Allow about an hour assuming you will want to take pictures of the beautiful skyline along the way. We started on the Brooklyn side in the DUMBO area. Metered parking on the waterfront was pretty easy to find ($2 and hour with a 3 hour maximum). There is a lot to see and do in this area: parks, recreations, shops, restaurants and great views of the bridge and the Manhattan skyline. We were able to explore the DUMBO area, walk across the Manhattan bridge, explore a little of China Town and walk back on the Brooklyn Bridge all at a leisurely pace and within 3 hours. This bridge is not as wide as the Brooklyn Bridge, the views are marred by a chain link fence (still a number of photo ops along the way), there are trains running every few minutes along the middle of the bridge (loud and lots of vibration if trying to take pics) but its also a lot less traveled (very safe) and a lot less crowded.

While we were in Brooklyn we ventured down to the park adjacent to the Manhattan Bridge. The views were fantastic and should be on your list of places to see when in the city.

We walked over Brooklyn Bridge and took numerous photos for other walkers. Walking back to Manhattan via Manhattan Bridge was energetic but restful. Fewer people and less of a view but much less hassle. We walked at a slow pace and really enjoyed it.

Yet another Bridge on the East River Besides the Brooklyn Bridge..Its a suspension bridge connecting Manhattan to Long Island..It uses a Warren type stiffening truss..and uses flexible steel towers..It has a very unique blue grey colour...seeing it on a cruise gives you such a nice perspective...
