A long or shorter route, challenging, for the brave and adventurous, along the East River and its legendary bridges. You will through Queens, Long Island City, Williamsburg, and DUMBO, before running back to Manhattan crossing the Brooklyn Bridge. A less touristy discovery, more exotic, exploring the full diversity of New York neighborhoods, while enjoying magnificent views of the Manhattan skyline.
The short tour (start close to Williamsburg Bridge, on Manhattan) is great, with the 3 best bridges (and crossing 2).
