Even though this is a popular Detroit bridge, this vantage point is a one of the city's best-kept secrets! It offers stunning views of the architecture, lush greenery and blue sky.

I took this image of the Ambassador Bridge on top of a large asphalt pile at the intersection of Standish Street and 20th Street.
Arrive at Standish Street and you'll see the open field next to an abandoned building. Pull over on the dirt road and then climb up to the top of the pile. You'll have the perfect elevated view, looking southwest toward the bridge. Reference satellite mode for context.
