Brooklyn Bridge as seen from Manhattan Bridge 3-29-12

This picture taken last night from the Manhattan Bridge faces south towards the Brooklyn Bridge.  Like the Brooklyn Bridge, the Manhattan Bridge is rich in transit history.  The Manhattan Bridge today carries four rapid transit subway tracks for 6th Avenue and Broadway subway services.  Many years ago, the Manhattan Bridge had a shuttle trolley that used regular overhead and at one time, I believe a set of tracks existed on the upper roadways that had a conduit that allowed some Manhattan streetcar lines that used conduits to travel as far east as downtown Brooklyn near the Manhattan Bridge extrance.  Note:  All photos shot so far for this blog is from the photography of docjayva.
