In New York, the city of bridges, it can be hard to get to where youre going by bicycle or rollerblade. Negotiating the citys bridges can be tricky, and many of the citys bridges are difficult or impossible for cyclists to cross. In addition, a number of recent construction projects have been holding up bicycle access on some of NYCs most important bridges.
Thats why Transportation Alternatives has put together this guide to NYC Metro area bridges. Click on a bridge or body of water above, and well tell you if you can bike or rollerblade on it, how to get there, and maybe other interesting information.For a quick overview of Manhattan crossings, check out the Manhattan bike map.
