Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge
Perfect view. Take many photos. Be respectful of the cyclists. A must do on a beautiful summer day.

The Brooklyn Bridge is a hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge in New York City and is one of the oldest bridges of either type in the United States. Completed in 1883, it connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River. It has a main span of 1,595.5 feet (486.3 m), and was the first steel-wire suspension bridge constructed. It was originally referred to as the New York and Brooklyn Bridge and as the East River Bridge, but it was later dubbed the Brooklyn Bridge, a name coming from an earlier January 25, 1867, letter to the editor of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, and formally so named by the city government in 1915. Since its opening, it has become an icon of New York City, and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964 and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1972.

The following services stop at this station: 4, 6, and J trains at all times 5 train at all times except late nights <6> train on weekdays in the peak direction Z skip-stop train during rush hours in the peak direction. Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall is the original southern terminus of the IRT except for the City Hall loop track for local trains whose decorative curving station in front of City Hall was closed on New Years Eve 1945. The track is still considered revenue service track meaning anyone can legally ride a terminating 6 train around the loop. The automated announcements now say "This is the last downtown stop on this train. The next stop will be Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall on the uptown platform." This station's closing added the City Hall suffix to the current station name. The stop also was referred as Brooklyn Bridge - Worth Street for a while in reference to another abandoned local stop just north of Brooklyn Bridge, closed in 1962 when Brooklyn Bridge's platforms were extended north and the new entrance was opened just a short two blocks south. Brooklyn Bridge has two abandoned platforms in the station itself as well, originally opening with two exit side platforms for local trains that closed by 1910 and were barely used. These are now fully tiled over and closed off by walls that have modern small text saying City Hall almost forming a trimline and larger Brooklyn Bridge name tablets. There are original walls relieves in the mezzanine area with two B's (one backward) inside the tunnel beneath the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge that connects to more station exits. The stop is an express stop and now terminus of 6 trains at all times with two island platforms for the four track line and the downtown platform signed for only the 4 and 5.

Le pont de Brooklyn (ou Brooklyn Bridge) à New York est l'un des plus anciens ponts suspendus des États-Unis. Il traverse l'East River pour relier les arrondissements de Manhattan et Brooklyn. Long de 1 825 mètres, il a été ouvert à la circulation le 24 mai 1883, après 14 ans de travaux. En traversant le pont de Brooklyn à Manhattan, vous profiterez d’une vue à couper le souffle sur le paysage urbain new-yorkais. Au fil des années, le Brooklyn Bridge est devenu le symbole mais aussi l’un des sites les plus importants de la ville de New York. La meilleure façon de découvrir le Brooklyn Bridge est de le traverser à pied. Je vous conseille de traverser le pont en direction de Manhattan pour profiter au maximum de la vue sur le paysage urbain de Manhattan. En plus, en prenant cette direction, le pont descend légèrement. Prenez le métro ligne A ou C à High St. à Brooklyn et suivez les panneaux ‘Brooklyn Bridge’. L’entrée du pont se situe à la Washington Street. http://www.newyorkcity.fr/brooklyn-bridge-new-york/
The East River is a salt water tidal estuary in New York City. The waterway, which is actually not a river despite its name, connects Upper New York Bay on its south end to Long Island Sound on its north end. It separates the borough of Queens on Long Island from the Bronx on the North American mainland, and also divides Manhattan from Queens and Brooklyn, which is also on Long Island. Because of its connection to Long Island Sound, it was once also known as the Sound River. The tidal strait changes its direction of flow frequently, and is subject to strong fluctuations in its current, which are accentuated by its narrowness and variety of depths. The waterway is navigable for its entire length of 16 miles (26 km), and was historically the center of maritime activities in the city, although that is no longer the case.
Fulton Street (Manhattan) Fulton Street is a busy street located in Lower Manhattan in New York City. Located in the Financial District, a few blocks north of Wall Street, it runs from Church Street at the site of the World Trade Center to South Street, terminating in front of the South Street Seaport. The easternmost block is a pedestrian street. After the World Trade Center construction is completed, it will extend further toward the Hudson River to West Street. The street has a Beaux-Arts architectural feel with many buildings dating back to the Gilded Age or shortly thereafter. The early 19th-century buildings on the south side of the easternmost block are called Schermerhorn Row and are a Registered Historic Place. Church Street is a short, but heavily travelled, north-south street in Lower Manhattan in New York City. Its southern end is at Trinity Place, of which it is a continuation, and its northern end is at Canal Street. Trinity Place begins at Battery Place and runs uptown, passing west of Trinity Church, the Trinity and United States Realty Buildings and Zuccotti Park. It then forms the southern part of the eastern boundary of the World Trade Center site before becoming Church Street, which continues as the eastern boundary. A few blocks before Canal Street, Church Street connects to the southern end of Sixth Avenue, with a roadway branching off Church Street. When not obstructed by construction on the World Trade Center site, Trinity Place, Church Street, and Sixth Avenue form a continuous northbound four-lane through-route from Lower Manhattan to Central Park. Church Street Church Street is named after Trinity Church, an historic Gothic-style parish church on Broadway at Wall Street, Extended in 1784, Church Street was in existence as early as 1761. Part of the street was owned by the church, but was given to the city in 1804.[1] Trinity Place is also a namesake of the church, being named so in 1834, prior to which it was known at various times as "Lumber Street" and "Lombard Street".[2] Prior to 1869, the south end of the street was at Fulton Street, three blocks north of Trinity Place;[3] then, over several years, a connection was cut through those blocks, both streets were widened, and Trinity Place was extended south to Morris Street. The work, plagued by delays and, allegedly, corruption, was completed by the end of 1872.[4]
One World Trade Center (also known as 1 World Trade Center, One WTC and 1 WTC; the current building was dubbed the "Freedom Tower" during initial basework) is the main building of the rebuilt World Trade Center complex in Lower Manhattan, New York City. It is the tallest skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere, and the sixth-tallest in the world. The 104-story supertall structure shares a numeric name with the North Tower of the original World Trade Center, which was destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The new skyscraper stands on the northwest corner of the 16-acre (6.5 ha) World Trade Center site, on the site of the original 6 World Trade Center. The building is bounded by West Street to the west, Vesey Street to the north, Fulton Street to the south, and Washington Street to the east.
