The bridge connects Brooklyn Bridge Park and the East River waterfront to Brooklyn Heights. It debuted in 2013, but closed in 2014 after reports the bridge was too bouncy.

In addition to the great views of Brooklyn Bridge Park and the Manhattan skyline, walkers get a close-up view of the Pierhouse condos — at least until all those trees fill in.
