"The lackluster bridge"

The Manhattan Bridge was the last of the suspension bridges built across the East River. And, not that there's a popularity contest going on between the bridges, but if there were a contest, this bridge would come in last place. It's the furthest south of the bridges and it is the only of the three I haven't ever walked across. Then again, that could be because the pedestrian lane was closed until 2011 for construction. And, weirdly, most of my friends haven't either. I guess it's because it's so far south, doesn't connect to a cool part of Brooklyn, and isn't particularly pretty. It was opened in 1909. It cost $31 million which is crazy for that time . . even for a bridge.
The bridge is pretty standard. It has a lower deck for pedestrians, bikes and the subway and an upper deck for cars. The bridge is mostly utilized for people commuting from lower parts of Brooklyn like Park Slope, Cobble Hill etc. There's really not much that's noteworthy about the thing to be honest.
  • Convenience for Brooklyn dwellers
  • Not the prettiest
