Nice looking bridge

This is an attractive bridge. It was cool to see this at sunset from the Roosevelt Island Aerial Tram.

I was amazed at how busy this bridge is for both bike and foot traffic. It's a long bridge and a great way to get some exercise.

We made a wrong turn going to lower east side and somehow ended up driving back and forth across this bridge. It definitely has a vintage feel to it. I read that it was completed in 1909. I wouldn't go out of my way to see this but it is an interesting looking bridge.

We went Roosevelt Island on the Tramway. I didn't realize we was just close to QB bridge. I was a sight to see.

Connecting midtown-upper east side to Queens. The bike and pedestrian path offers great views north. The upper east side, Roosevelt island and its tram are nice to see from up here. Practically no tourists.

The lease runs out in the summer, and a number of us are working with the City to find different uses. There are very limited open spaces on this side of the... More

We crossed the bridge on the way back from Larchmont New York where we had dinner. The view were very good but the roads needed some repairs.

In my goal to walk across every Bridge over the East River, the Queensboro was my goal for today. Nice wide walkways coming from Queens into Manhattan gives nice views north, but anything to the south is hard to see. Nice structure and easy walk. Unlike the other bridges, this one crosses over an island (Roosevelt Island) allowing a unique... More

We crossed over on the Queensboro Bridge on the way to Mid-Town from La Guardia and it was an awesome site. The traffic was light and moving well. We got a wonderful view of Manhattan.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
