⁴ᴷ Walking in NYC over the Manhattan Bridge on a Sunny Day from Downtown Brooklyn to Chinatown

Enjoy this virtual walk over the Manhattan Bridge from Downtown Brooklyn to Chinatown!

From Wikipedia:
“The Manhattan Bridge is a suspension bridge that crosses the East River in New York City, connecting Lower Manhattan at Canal Street with Downtown Brooklyn at the Flatbush Avenue Extension. The main span is 1,470 ft (448 m) long, with the suspension cables being 3,224 ft (983 m) long. The bridge’s total length is 6,855 ft (2,089 m). It is one of four toll-free bridges spanning the East River; the other three are the Queensboro, Williamsburg, and Brooklyn Bridges.

The bridge opened to traffic on December 31, 1909. It was built by The Phoenix Bridge Company and designed by Leon Moisseiff,and is noted for its innovative design. As the first suspension bridge to employ Josef Melan’s deflection theory for the stiffening of its deck, it is considered to be the forerunner of modern suspension bridges, and this design served as the model for many of the long-span suspension bridges built in the first half of the twentieth century. The Manhattan Bridge was also the first suspension bridge to utilize a Warren truss in its design.”

  1. Thank you for this amazing video. I will probably never visit New York City but you have given me a glimpse from one of the cities iconic landmarks. Thank you.

  2. The Manhattan Bridge pedestrian path was closed to the public throughout the years that I lived in N.Y. . I would very often walk across the Brooklyn Bridge on on occasion would be virtually alone (not quite the same now huh? lol ). As a lover of everything N.Y., I would explore every nook and cranny available to the public (and sometimes NOT public). The Manhattan Bridge walkover eluded me. Thanks for giving me the opportunity of taking a virtual walk now. Side note: I know graffiti is considered "artistic expression", but quite honestly would love to make the "artists" responsible for the scars on this icon have lick the paint off with their tongues.

  3. This is probably the one that I’ve never been there before. We used to drove it for quite some time a long time ago. This should’ve been the spot where they set off fireworks during the Macy’s 4th of July fireworks this past Thursday night since all the pedestrians are closed while cars were stuck in traffic on the upper level for each span while they were setting off fireworks on the Brooklyn Bridge, because it was too crowded. Except for the subway section, it still kept going. Where people in the subway watched the fireworks while riding on the Manhattan Bridge via subway.

    I see the original plaque at 11:45 are all covered with graffiti. This ruined the entire plaque due to its history.

  4. a while ago when I was crossing manhattan-bound just as night was settling over the city and the lights of the financial district were flickering on, one by one, about midway over I encountered a couple. the guy was filming the girl who was playing a beautiful tune on the violin with the financial district and brooklyn bridge in the background lit up for night. every time she tried to play a train would rumble past before she could complete it and when it past she'd try again. just as the last train rumbled away she'd start up but not quite make it before the next. after a bunch of tried they were able to get through it without a train. anyway, the scene of the city lighting up, one window at a time, as the night overtook the sky, the bridge and habor, a beautiful violin song wafting over the wind 500ft over the water between subways roaring past and nobody else really around was a new york magic moment.

  5. Never been to NYC, but I think this is one of the most beautiful bridges there is! The heavy ornamentation is stunning and I'm equally in awe of the care and pride that must have gone into the architecture! If I ever have the chance to walk this bridge, I could spend a very long time looking at it in detail. I would say the same for the Brooklyn and Williamsburg bridges too.
