The Runnable Bridges of New York City

Below is a map identifying what I believe to be the runnable bridges in New York City. Bridges were identified using what I call “the McCarthy List” developed by ultra runner Phil McCarthy. You can see my own attempt to run all these bridges here.

Phil only counted bridges that spanned natural waterways, and did not count bridges in restricted or pay to enter areas (such as the Bronx Botanical Gardens or Fresh Kills on Staten Island). I am following Phil’s guidelines, but if you find any errors or admissions, please get in touch at miloandthecalf@gmail.

HUGE thanks to Phil for all the work he did putting this list together. Its a great resource for runners.
