- The Williamsburg Bridge is one of the best and fastest ways to get from Brooklyn to Manhattan. A great alternative to the more well-known Brooklyn Bridge, the Williamsburg Bridge offers great views of the city when crossing the river. A pleasant pedestrian and biking path places bi-peds above all the cars, and even the subway, which uses the bridge to cross. The railings are painted a pleasing pink (although this is sometimes more of a red color) and the walk is pleasant. In Brooklyn, the bridge is just next to a cute neighborhood with shops and cafes, and in Manhattan, the end drops you in the thick of the hustle and bustle for which the City is revered.
