Why locals love it

Where as the Brooklyn Bridge is a global icon and flocked to by tourists from near and far, the Williamsburg bridge is its less-flashy, perhaps even a bit grungy, step-sister. Skateboarders, cyclists, pedestrians and even their pups use the Williamsburg bridge every day during their city commute.

Why you should visit it

The Williamsburg Bridge connects the Lower East Side and Williamsburg, Brooklyn's hottest neighborhood at the moment. A walk over the Williamsburg bridge will give you insight into the everyday transit of many Brooklynites. Plus, remarkable views of lower Manhattan and downtown Brooklyn - the Brooklyn Bridge, included!

Special tip

Be very cautious of which side of the bridge is for pedestrians, and which is for cyclists.
