Walking on the Manhattan Bridge is one of those non-touristy alternatives to a larger tourist attraction, the Brooklyn Bridge. We like the Manhattan Bridge because it’s a real commute and it’s a place from where you can get real sights of pretty real streets. Peek through the fences to see Chinatown, rooftops, graffiti and scenes below. We like to walk the length of the bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn and wind up in DUMBO, where you can see the sunset against the skyline.
