When our bus drove on the bridge, my first view is the panarama of Manhatten. It is amazing. I was shocked by the beautiful scenery. I really would like the bus stopping on the bridge and let me enjoy the scenery, but I know it is impossible.

As a former Brooklyn resident, I'd been here a few times and recently walked across it again on my last trip to NYC. This bridge looks impressive from a distance but is in my opinion not great to walk across, its ok to drive across, and its very good to get a view of the East River taking a subway across. The neighborhoods at the bridge bases on both sides feels a little grimier than those at the Brooklyn Bridge and when walking across this one, consider you are walking on a 10' wide concrete walkway on the outside of the bridge and you feel the effect of the subway vibration whenever it comes across. Between a rumbling subway on one side and overlooking the water on the other is in my opinion not a great feeling. View wise, its got its more minuses than pluses, you dont see Lower Manhattan the same way but you can see more of midtown, your view of Brooklyn is reduced as its between the Brooklyn and Williamsburg Bridges. Worth walking across once or twice but once one walks this and the Brooklyn Bridge, one will have no dispute over which Bridge is better to walk across

Walked across here into Brooklyn with the family, there were some kind of works going on and the beginning section was covered over, once we cleared that bit, WOW what a view. So many things to look at and the vista changed as you got further across, looking back toward Manhatten was the classic view you always see. Just be warned that people zoom over here on their bikes, so watch out, we saw a number of near misses. Well worth the effort.

Many people consider the Manhattan Bridge to be inferior to the Brooklyn Bridge, but I beg to differ. And the views are just as good from here, not to mention the fact that from here you actually have a good view OF the Brooklyn Bridge - they both deserve walking. The view is particularly interesting of the streets of both Brooklyn & Manhattan, especially those of Chinatown in Manhattan. The pedestrian walkway is on the southern side of the bridge.
The pedestrian access on the Manhattan side is at Bowery/St. James Place & Canal Street, in Chinatown; on the Brooklyn side it's at Jay Street & Nassau Street.

Manhattan bridge is a suspension bridge that serves hundreds of thousands of commuters crossing lower Manhattan and Brooklyn everyday.

It also has a pedestrian side to it. If you do a night bus tour of New York, you'll get to appreciate the beauty of the bridge better with all the lights.

Apart from that, it's just another bridge!
