The Manhattan Bridge

Brooklyn, NY 11201, USA
13 Kudos
There are two notable bridges that cross the East River and connect Manhattan to Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Bridge is the more popular and crowded one as it is one of those iconic landmarks in New York City. Then there is the Manhattan Bridge which is not as popular but you will not find as many crowds. I highly recommend walking both bridges when the weather is nice as both have pedestrian walkways. A great route is to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to Brooklyn and then walk back to Manhattan across the Manhattan Bridge. There is also a lot to enjoy in Brooklyn while there like museums, parks, and the DUMBO area.
