This short scene says a lot of things: 1. In the car, Tony's friends are being very negative about what their future is. When Tony gets out and walks to the bridge it shows that he has a positive vision and outlook on the future, which is in direct contrast to his friends. 2. Tony wants a better life for himself and knows that leaving Brooklyn (crossing the bridge) is the only way it is going to happen. Tony loves his family and friends, but knows he must leave them behind for the future he wants.  3. Tony's friends are clouding his mind. Once Tony gets out the car and away from his negative friends, he is able to focus better and have a clear vision of what it is he wants to do with his life. This is symbolized when Tony sits down on the park bench and shows there is much more tranquility and good to the character of Tony.

I can't believe the studio left this off the DVD, it's my favorite scene of the movie.  For one, it sets up Tony's love for the bridge he talks about later in the movie when he sits on the bench with Stefanie.  And as others have mentioned, the scene looks beautiful and the score of How Deep is Your Love behind it simply makes it the best scene of the movie. I'll be in the club for those who want to petition the studio to include it on the 40th year release of the DVD. LOL

Perhaps they can put out a version with all the deleted scenes. They all provided very good insights into the story and character development.

It's nice to see that Tony Manera was more than a 1970s disco air head. Whatever dream there is in the scene, it had to do with the artistic curve of the bridge support cables. Perhaps he dreamed of being an artist, an architect, or a historian. The bridge is more than a way out of Brooklyn. Perhaps he didn't want to leave Brooklyn as much as he wanted to go somewhere else, to do more than sell pain and drop cloths. Good luck, Tony. I hope you are a fat 'n' happy grandpa today.. .
Shucks. They never included this in the DVD as deleted scenes. This is the best deleted scene and they don't include it in the compilation of deleted scenes.
Believe it or not this to me is one of the best scenes in movie history! If you are in your mid-late 40's and lived in the New York area when this movie came out, trust me this scene really hits home!

They should added this but without the music, just background sounds.

The nostalgia in those Bridge scenes, that 2039m long bridge leading from Brooklyn over to Staten Island, that long bridge dividing Manhattan's Upper New York Bay and Lower New York Bay, also representing a social gap between social classes.. It really took me eight years to realize why exactly Johnny goes there for daydreaming!
