The Verrazano is the longest suspension bridge in all of the U.S. Why is the Golden Gate so much more popular? Probably because it's red, or maybe because it is not a pedestrian or bicyclist bridge. Motor vehicles only are allowed on the bridge.
A waterfront park/path travels along the Brooklyn side for about 2 miles in each direction. This path is great for a bike ride, and is also a decent place to bird watch. Plus the pier at the Western end has a great view of Downtown Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. At night the bridge is lit up nicely.
The major downside to the bridge is the toll, which is currently $13 for a round trip.
