The Williamsburg Bridge is the largest suspension bridge on the East River, with a view of the Domino Sugar Factory (video inside the demolition here). Unfortunately, approaching the Williamsburg Bridge from the Manhattan side is one of the most fatal intersections for pedestrians in the city, something the city has been actively trying to redesign.
