Williamsburg Bridge Tours

With Brooklyn growing in popularity by the day, and Williamsburg at the helm of its cultural vibrancy, the Williamsburg Bridge connects the trendy area to Manhattan. Dating back to 1896, when it was realized that the Brooklyn Bridge alone would not serve the traffic needed between Brooklyn and Manhattan, construction on this second bridge began. At the time of its completion, it was the largest suspension bridge in the world. 

The large bridge allows for transit from Williamsburg over to the lower east side of New York City, granting views of the city skyline. It carries both automobile and rail traffic, though is often best enjoyed on foot to take in the urban scenery. The designated National Engineering Historic Landmark is a symbol of industrial strength and well-executed design. Walking across the bridge allows for many excellent viewpoints and photo opportunities of both cities, as well as the East River and the neighboring Brooklyn Bridge.

Practical Info

The Williamsburg Bridge can be entered from Manhattan at Delancy and Clinton Streets, or from Brooklyn on Bedford Avenue between South 5th and South 6th Streets. There are separate sides for pedestrians and bikers as directed by signs. The bridge also carries the J, M, and Z Subway lines and carries up to eight lanes of road traffic. It is free for all to cross.
