I've seen this bridge from the cable car going to Roosvelt Island. I really recommend this point of view. The trip in the cable car is included in the metrocard and the view is breathtaking!

Crossed this bridge while going to JFK airport from Times Square. Bridge itself is very impressive, huge and eye-catching. It is also known as 59th Street bridge built on East river.

I was amazed at how busy this bridge is for both bike and foot traffic. It's a long bridge and a great way to get some exercise.
