Over the years I have logged a lot of miles on foot throughout New York City. One task I set for myself was to walk across all bridges connecting Manhattan to other parts of the world. Some days I have crossed more than one to return back to Manhattan from an outer borough. This list of river crossings is a long one and an undertaking sure to occupy many more afternoon ambles.
Here is the list of those bridges I have crossed on foot: Brooklyn, Manhattan, Willliamsburgh, Queensborough, Roosevelt, George Washington, and Wards Island.
Those still on the list awaiting exploration are: Triborough, Willis Avenue, Third Avenue, Park Avenue Railroad, Madison Avenue, 145th Street, Macombs Dam, High, Alexander Hamilton, Washington, University Heights, Broadway, Henry Hudson, Hell’s Gate and Spuyten Duyvil Railroad.
Obviously, some are not accessible by foot, but who knew there were so many ways to get to the rest of the world?
