One of the big bridges to Brooklyn from Manhattan, this one taking you the heart of the hipster paradise of Williamsburg. An important way to move people and traffic and the bridge has its own charm.

A walk across Williamsburg Bridge is well worth it, it is an impressive structure and carries, walkers, cyclists, cars and subway trains. It is a really cool spot with good views of the city. Once you've walked it, well worth also going across on the subway. Not the first place on a tourist's itinerary but it should be.

Third in a row across the East river, Williamsburg bridge connects Queens and Manhattan. It's an awesome steel structure and another famous bridge in NYC.
It's way less crowded than Brooklyn bridge.

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.

Not a famous and Brooklyn Bridge but every bit as iconic and beautiful to every New Yorker. A piece of time and history.

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.

When I was living in Bethlehem, PA, this was my direct route home after my summer weekends on Long Island. East to cross then follow the local streets to the Holland Tunnel.

This bridge is wider (better) for walkers, I am told. Also bikes are separated from walkers for 75% of way across, which makes it more relaxing to stop, look around, etc.
