A Winter Walk over Manhattan Bridge Reveals Stunning Views

It can’t compete with the grandeur of the famous Brooklyn Bridge. No other span can. But the views are really something. There’s a reason savvy sightseers venture out to the middle of the Manhattan Bridge when the temperature’s only 24 degrees. Its pedestrian path offers a peerless perspective of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge as it swoops majestically over the East River. From this vantage point on the Manhattan Bridge, Jane’s Carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park stands in front of one of the Brooklyn Bridge’s stone towers, and the World Trade Center and the Woolworth Building in Lower Manhattan stand behind the Brooklyn Bridge’s other stone tower. From this spot on the Manhattan Bridge’s walkway, the landmarked Empire Stores complex on the shoreline of Brooklyn Bridge Park and the nearby DUMBO Clock Tower can also be seen.

What the truck?! Big-rigs may clog Brooklyn Heights streets if state pols don’t grant speedier BQE repairs

Thousands of big-rigs may be forced to rumble along Brooklyn Heights streets if state lawmakers don’t pass legislation to accelerate the reconstruction of a decrepit stretch of the Brooklyn–Queens Expressway that runs through the nabe, according to city transit honchos, who warned locals at a Monday meeting that the roadway will soon be unable to hold the heavy vehicles. “The corrosion in the rebar will have reached a point where the capacity of the structure to carry trucks is going to be reduced,” said Tanvi Pandya, a project manager overseeing the repairs. “We’re really concerned that we don’t miss that. We want to stay ahead of that curve.” – The Brooklyn Paper
