    Elevation: flat
    Direction: linear, from north to south
    Urban constraints: medium, and new-yorker

    Start 3: Delancey street station or Essex street station (11km)
    Finish: City Hall

    As any urbirun route, you can start wherever you want. Watch for direction (from north to south)

    Public transportation: Start 1 Subway station 59st (lines 4, 5, 6, 6X) or station Lexington Ave/59th (lines N, Q, R) / Start 2 Subway station Queensboro Plaza (lines 7, N, Q, 7X) or Queens Plaza (lines E, M, R) / Start 3 Subway Delancey st station (line F) or Essex st station (lines J, M, Z).

    A long or shorter route, challenging, for the brave and adventurous, along the East River and its legendary bridges. You will through Queens, Long Island City, Williamsburg, and DUMBO, before running back to Manhattan crossing the Brooklyn Bridge. A less touristy discovery, more exotic, exploring the full diversity of New York neighborhoods, while enjoying magnificent views of the Manhattan skyline.
    The short tour (start close to Wiliamsburg Bridge, on Manhattan) is great, with the 3 best bridges (crossing 2).

    Alternative routes: Start Lexington ave/60th 19.6km (12.2mi) / Start Queensboro Plaza station 16.5km (10.25mi) / Start Delancey st station ou Essex st station 11km (6.85mi) (on Manhattan, towards Williamsburg Bridge)
