Best Borough Connector (2008)

PULASKI BRIDGE

The structurally functional PULASKI BRIDGE, which is really a drawbridge, traverses itty-bitty Newtown Creek and connects Greenpoint to Long Island City. Free from the frills of those gaudy suspension wires (I'm lookin' at you, Brooklyn Bridge), it carries regular bus service between the two nabes, and the pedestrian-friendly path means you can extend your Brooklyn waterfront bike tour into Astoria, fatass.
