Williamsburg Bridge



Connecting the Lower East Side of Manhattan with Brooklyn, the Williamsburg Bridge stretches over the East River and carries the J, M and Z subway lines, a bike path and a walkway, in addition to its eight lanes of vehicle capacity. Opened in 1903, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world at the time. Currently the bridge transports about 140,000 motorists, 92,000 transit riders, 600 bikers and 500 pedestrians between the two boroughs. The bridge is toll free.
