Connecting Lower Manhattan with downtown Brooklyn, the Manhattan Bridge boasts an innovative design that served as the forerunner to future suspension bridges, designed by Leon Moisseiff and officially opening for traffic in 1909. At nearly 7,000 feet, it is one of four bridges spanning the East River, offering picturesque views of the city.
Brooklyn Bridge Park
Located directly underneath the Brooklyn Bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge Park not only offers some of the most breathtaking views of Manhattan, but is home to a slew of events at any given time of the year, always with activities featured that appeal to people of all ages. In addition, there are basketball, tennis and volleyball courts, a skating rink, a dog run, and even a harbour for boats. Visitors can go to Pier 1 and take in the playground and concession stands, or enjoy the waterfront promenade. The area is always bustling with activity and is a popular spot for both tourists and locals alike.
Walt Whitman Park
Named after famed poet, journalist and native New Yorker, the Walt Whitman Park is a popular destination known for its laidback atmosphere, gaming tables, and lush green areas that serve as a contrast to the more industrialized locales in the city. It is an ideal place for cyclists to enjoy the pathways or even enjoy a picnic during the spring and summer months and be one with nature.
Fort Greene Park
There are many reasons why this has become one of the most popular neighborhoods in the city, and Fort Greene Park is just one of them. The historic district, formerly known as ‘The Hill’, has emerged as an area noted for its beautiful brownstone houses and mix of architectural styles that incorporate Greco-Roman, Italian, and Greek influences. A ride through Fort Greene Park is an excellent way to bask in the art surrounding the area, which boasts a rich cultural tapestry that has made it a top destination for history buffs and cultural events.
Admiral's Row/ Brooklyn Navy Yard
Formerly a busy military shipbuilding site, Navy Yard has now transformed into a sprawling industrial park that is home to many sustainability programs, many of which are open to the general public. For a glimpse at another historic area noted for its – some say haunted – houses is Admiral’s Row, the former home to military officers and now quickly moving away from its naval past.
Cycling through Battery Park gives you amazing views of several historical landmarks in New York, including the Freedom Tower, Statue of Liberty, and even the Jersey City skyline. The area is perfect for taking in the Hudson River and taking note of one of the most charismatic parts of lower Manhattan.
