I had walked the Brooklyn Bridge in both directions in the past when it was so crowded and everyone taking selfies and walking in front of bikers, etc. This time around I decided to walk the Williamsburg Bridge just because I took the subway over from Manhattan and needed to get back, so why not. Liked that the walkers, bikers, cars and subway all have their own paths altho it's noisy with the subway running across it. But the views of the Manhattan skyline and the river below was nice. It's only about 1.5 miles to walk it so it went pretty fast. When this bridge opened in 1903 it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. Maybe the Brooklyn Bridge has more charm, but with the lack of crowds on a nice day, I was happy with this choice.

I prefer the Williamsburg Bridge because it is the eastermost bridge from Lower Manhattan. Perfect for Long Islanders. Not as glamorous as the Manhattan Bridge or the Brooklyn Bridge.

My daughter lives close to the bridge and we walked and biked several times. They did a nice job dividing up the bridge for walkers and bikers. The views are fantastic and you definitely get a good workout.

The Williamsburg Bridge connects Queens to Manhattan. Here’s a picture of me traveling underneath it from the water.

The Williamsburg Bridge is a suspension bridge across the East River. It is connecting the Lower East Side of Manhattan at Delancey Street with the Williamsburg neighborhood.
The Brooklyn landing is between Grand Street and Broadway, which both had ferries at the time. The five ferry routes operated from these landings withered and went out of business by 1908.

Subway:
Take "A" or the "C"
Get off at DELANCEY ST STATION and walk 0.2 miles(4 minutes) East to destination.

The bridge between the Williamsburg part of Brooklyn and lower Manhattan. The part of Manhattan known as the lower Eastside. There is a separate bike lane and a lane to walk over the bridge for pedestrians. The bridge was built in 1903, which at the time it was built, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. You could drive across the bridge in your car. Great views. Lots of history.

I recommend grabbing a bike and going! It is a great way to step out of the frey of the city and go above it all. The views over the East River are amazing. Stop and admire along the way the awe-inspiring New York skyline, the old Domino Sugar factory, and be thankful you aren't sitting in the traffic below you!

I'd wanted to walk the Williamsburg bridge on previous visits as we'd walked Manhattan bridge and Brooklyn Bridge so wanted to complete the hat trick so to speak !.

It took us 40-45 mins and we were rewarded with views of the other bridges and the East river and lots of interesting graffiti on the way as well as Williamsburg at the end.

Was a lovely walk which added to our visit to Williamsburg.
