On this rainy Monday around 5pm, I decided to start my walk with someone very close to me. I thought the weather was pretty windless and calm. It didn’t bother me at all. Over all the walk from the train station to the destination, was 15 to 20 mins because we stopped to for a while to see the new sites around us.
I chose my route to beinning from to City Tech to my destination, which was to Manhattan bridge. Mostly I take the F train to and from City Tech. I live in Jamaica, Queens , so, it takes an hour or 45 mins to get to school. Back to why I chose that route because I wanted to see the Brookyln Brigde at a full view. That’s all I wanted to do on the route. I was very determined to see that massive structure from a far distance and see all of it. By the way, I’ve never walked in that area around Manhattan Bridge, but the sites looks very familiar to Flushing where my high school is.
Pictures on my route:
As you walk to the train from City Tech, you have to take the F train going uptown Manhattan side. You get off at East Broadway which three stops away from Jay St. Metro tech. (Note: be prepared for walking up a lot of stairs). When you get outside, you immediately can see greenery across the street from you like it seems like a small park. You will have to make right turn around the corner. You will see shops like a bakery on the corner, a Bubble tea store, small convenient stores on both sides on E Broadway. You’ll first notice the Asian culture in the area and think your in Chinatown. Well, you are sort of. Anyway, you’ll walk straight down E Broadway and see small markets near the wall on the end of the bridge. You’ll have to walk all the way to the end of the bridge until you see a path to get on the brigde, but don’t walk on the path that is only for bikes. There would be a busy highway into and off the bridg, so, be careful. To get on the bridge, you have to walk past the park, Popeyes and an amazing entrance to the bridge that the cars drive through. Also, spot a christmasy sign that says Welcome to ChinaTown. to Then walk across to a small area in the middle of the stair. You’ll see a sign for people to walk on the bridge. That’s how you get there but you would have to walk all the way down to the middle of it to see Brookyln bridge. The walk to that spot is only have minutes even if the path looks like it will last forever. There’s no benchs to rest on, but a gate to protect you from falling, get a cool experience to be close to the moving trains, see the plenty of graffiti art on your path.
