So, the Verrazano Bridge is another of my favorites. You can only walk or bike over it once a year - either as a NY Marathon runner OR during the Five Boro Bike Ride. A great place to get a good look at it is from underneath. You can pull off the Belt Parkway just before Exit 2 into a little parking lot. From there you can access the biking and walking trail that goes under the bridge. You can walk down to the Pier at 69th Street in Bay Ridge or in the other direction which lands you by a Wendy's, Toys R Us, and Kohls. Many south Brooklyn residents come here for the fresh air, near constant breeze, and a place to walk, run, roller blade or bike with no car interference. There are a few food trucks from time to time in the parking lot under the bridge or down a ways off the Belt. Very few places to use the restroom except in the shopping mall area. Lovely at sunset!
