  • It was only until we were driving over the bridge that I recognized where I was... The bridge from the opening titles of the TV show Taxi. I was amazed and it was awesome to experience after watching that show as child. The view from here is amazing too!

  • Yes, you can bike or walk across the bridge. Just make sure you're on the 'right' side (the side facing the Bronx and away from Manhattan). The other side is not accessible. Bikers and pedestrians share the same path, which is not only annoying but also unsafe. Like other bridges in the city, the path is fenced off with industrial wire (for obvious reasons) but you can peer through the holes to take photos. The skyline view is not as dramatic as on the other side but it's picture worthy. For panoramic views of the bridge, head to Roosevelt Island, the midpoint of the bridge. There is an elevated area there, south of the Cornell University campus, with sweeping views of the bridge. Unfortunately, there is no way to reach the island via this bridge. You can take either the F subway train or the Roosevelt Island tram.

  • This is a love hate relationship here. But gotta say, seeing Ed Koch wave at traffic that one day I’ll never forget. God bless him. Negative 100 stars for the thousands of hours I sat in traffic on this bridge, but plus 105 stars for the direct shot in the heart of Manhattan. Also love biking on the bike path.

  • The view is breathtaking. Being in Roosevelt Island between Queens and Upper East skylines is part of those king of unique things that just New York City seems able to offer. I came back in evening. I consider this place a gem. My advice is to just take the F line and stop in this little, amazing Island.

  • nice bridge to walk across probably took me 40 minutes. there's trash cans at the end of the walk wish they could be throughout the walk. there's certain parts where you can catch a cab
