Cities like London, Paris, and Tokyo are lucky to have narrow rivers that can be crossed by arch bridges while cities like Shanghai or New York have wide rivers that are more difficult to cross.
Like the nearby Mahattan Bridge, the Williamsburg Bridge carries bikes, pedestrians, trains, and vehicle lanes on two decks. However, it is much more attractive and presents a more unified appearance. The two-legged towers are built up of laced members that match the appearance of the truss superstructure.
