Also you get a good view of the Manhattan bridge too and can see the statue of liberty from the bridge. We went on the weekend at around midday which... More

One of the top attractions to see in NYC. It is one of the prettiest bridges I've been on. Walked across it twice lol.

Had a wonderful visit to NYC and enjoyed the Brooklyn Bridge. Lots to see when going over and back and gives you a good perspective of the location of places in Manhattan.

We began our walk from the NY city hall around 8am on a Saturday and it was just perfect! We pretty much had the bridge by ourselves. Amazing bridge! Had the perfect Manhattan skyline views so we were able to capture the views in all its glory. Very easy walk----quick workout!

Very nice view but the professional traveller takes a taxi (or subway) to Brooklyn and walk back enjoying the Manhattan view on the whole walk.

What a great way to see this but to walk over it and marvel at the magnificent arches and watch the traffic below.

Walked from Brooklyn to Manhattan. Beautiful views! It took us about 35 -40 minutes stopping along the way to take pictures. Recommend if you are not walking it both ways that you walk towards Manhattan. If with a loved one bring a lock with your names on them to secure it along the way.

Maybe not the best to drive on, but it is a good walk. They've made some changes so you can get to food a little easier on the Brooklyn side after your journey over. A great way to spend a few hours on a sunny day.
