Very practical and workday. We rode the subway over this bridge several times and loved the views of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Also lost of traffic crossing. Important part of the urban infrastructure.

I recommend crossing the Manhattan Bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn, touring DUMBO and then walking to and crossing the Brooklyn Bridge back to Manhattan. That should burn off a few bagels!

Less known than the Brooklyn Bridge, which is parallel to this one, this bridge is very majestic and massive. It’s a spectacle for your eyes!

We didn’t find it as good as Brooklyn but then again it’s just a bridge. Another icon bridge NYC has to offer. Worth a visit if nearby but more for the bragging rights and photo opportunities of the views this bridge has to provide. Nothing more.

Manhattan Bridge is a fantastic sight from Brooklyn or Manhattan. Living history, try standing under the bridge when the subway rolls past.

In the DUMBO area, near the intersection of Water & Washington, you can get a great view of the Manhattan Bridge. Great place to take photos!

It's a bridge that will get you across the river..... Hopefully without too much traffic. I really can't say why this is called an attraction. One good thing is... There is no toll... Yet

There's nothing much close by the Brooklyn side, but the subway is only about 2 blocks from the entrance. This is not a very attractive bridge, but the views of the Brooklyn Bridge and state of Liberty are great. Of the 3 bridges to Brooklyn, this one has the best views. The walkway seems safer too. I didn't encounter any bikes.

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