The View Uptown from the Manhattan Bridge

Empire State from the BQE
Photo by myself from the Manhattan Bridge.

Looking northwest from the Manhattan Bridge, one can see from Canal Street all the way up through to Midtown, some 40 blocks away.

The tall building in the middle is, of course, the Empire State Building. The smaller building jusy to the right with the gold pyramid is the New York Life Insurance Building, at 26th Street and Madison Avenue.

A friend and I are on a mission to walk the bridges, but we've yet to get around to the Manhattan Bridge. How is the walk across that one? Are the cyclists as crazy as they are on the Williamsburg Bridge?

Have a great weekend Kitty
