The footbridge is built on a metallic framework resting on two stone piers at the riverbanks, and decorated with dark green ceramic tiles arranged in a fashion that suggests the impression of waves. Built to accommodate visitor traffic to the 1900 World's Fair it is an example of French engineering prowess and .... like the Eiffel Tower. None of that is terribly helpful when deciding if this is the place you want to propose for the romantic memory of a life time.
The footbridge crosses the Seine from the Quai de New York, across from the Palais de Tokyo, to the Museum Branly. Unfortunately, there is very ugly graffiti on the side of the bridge, which is not that welcoming but at least you can not see it once on the bridge or in evening when the bridge is lit. Another problem is that the Quai de New York is not that nice to walk along due to constant traffic, same on the other side of the bridge except the road is wider and there is a green walkway. So nicer during the day for sure if you are on foot. If you have a vehicle waiting on either side then its a better. Bottom line... you can certainly make it work!
