From Brooklyn Bridge

From the Brooklyn Bridge, which once carried Brooklyn elevated trains (and streetcars, and cable cars, long, long ago) to Manhattan, the pedestrian can get some sweeping views.  Here, a Q or W train plies the Manhattan Bridge into Brooklyn.  One tower of the Williamsburg Bridge appears, further up the river.

In addition to the two suspension bridges that carry transit lines, the East River is crossed by six different subway tunnel routes between Manhattan and Brooklyn, and four linking Manhattan with Queens; there are an even dozen different routes the system uses to cross the river.
