Old School. Manhattan Bridge.

If you ride a bike over the East River in between the chosen boroughs, the Manhattan Bridge is a far easier and less treacherous passage than the Brooklyn Bridge where you are pretty much guaranteed to plow into (or nearly do) some unsuspecting camera wielding vacationer from Waxahachi.  Also, you get a great view through the chain link fence of the graffiti on the rooftops of the Lower East Side!

We'd love to hear what you think about this one.
