Great view of brooklyn bridge

So so noisy as the trains go by But worth a look Nice area just off the bridge with lots of discount stores and you can get the train back if you are on the manhattan side

An impressive piece of architecture, slightly less impressive than its sister the Brooklyn Bridge! Great views of Manhattan from across the river!

It was a fairly decent walk, but the constant noise of the subway right next to the pedestrians can get really bothersome. The view is wonderful though - the tip of Manhattan and the Brooklyn bridge look awesome from there.

It will get you from here to there, but not the most pleasant walk. It does give a nice view of NY skyline...

Less steep, fewer crowds, and better bike lanes than the Brooklyn Bridge. When it suits my route I always choose the Manhattan Bridge.

Maybe it's my compulsion to keep looking at the Brooklyn Bridge that always has this as the smaller uglier brother.

Another Iconic landmark which I had on my to do list and actually thought that a tour I had joined was going to take me over the bridge but instead they did the Manhattan Bridge which was okay but it was not the Brooklyn Bridge so our last day I walked the bridge from Manhattan to Brooklynn and then return....

We did one of the night bus tours which included going across the Manhattan Bridge. The views were amazing. The tour guide was also so very informative which made this ever more interesting.
