The bridges between Manhattan and Brooklyn in NYC are architectural marvels. And you can explore them on foot!
Walk from Manhattan’s Lower East Side to Williamsburg. Take the F, J, M or Z subways to Essex St./Delancey St. Explore the Essex Market, then head out to Delancy St. and start the walk over the bridge.
Once in Williamsburg, check out this page for just a sampling of what is available there.
Have a day free and don’t mind walking or biking? Start at City Hall and cross the Brooklyn Bridge. Enjoy some time at Brooklyn Bridge Park, then head over to the Manhattan Bridge. Finish up in Chinatown for some dim sum.
