We parked at Tom Lee Park (pictured above facing north) and walked south to the Harahan Bridge where the Big River Crossing is. Here's the view as we approached:
It is closed overnight but open til 10:00 PM and well-lit. We were there mid-day. You get a great view of downtown Memphis.
The railings are high enough to make the most skittish person feel secure. Here I am on my tiptoes:
You can see the pyramid and the "M" bridge in the distance. The view really is stunning!
The Memphis side is up on a bluff, but the bridge on the Arkansas side is over lowlands for a while before you get to the picnic area on that end of the bridge.

This is such a wonderful addition to our downtown!
