Best ways to experience the city and to get a unique view of either borough. Brooklyn Bridge is also one of the oldest suspension bridges in the country.

Worth a walk into Brooklyn, and great views on a sunny day. A very different way to see the Manhattan Skyline. Only issue is the bicyclists; on the road they think they own them, on a pedestrian path they think the same (sorry, pet hate!) Got the subway back, so simples and cost effective - get an all week pass... More

Excellent walk over the bridge to Brooklyn with views over Manhattan and cooling breeze very welcome .

Don't skip this walk, but watch out for the bikers, better yet, rent a bike and return on the other side of the bridge. Great views!

I took a tour on the double decker bus called skyline and it didn't not go over the brooklyn bridge. So I decided to take the 6 train down to see the famous bridge for myself. All I have to say is go at night. The city lights up wonderful sight:)

I enjoyed this walk with some nice view of new York and Brooklyn. You can see below cars and the river. Remind me many movies. Also you arrive in Brooklyn and continue your ballad in this area. I left on the bridge mine and my wife name and date has a souvenir like many people. Romantic and enjoyable.
