Views are amazing! We walked it at night and actually found it quite peaceful. I was also happy to see a police presence since it was late when we went.

I have lived in NY for the past 10years and nevertheless, the view from the Brooklyn Bridge never stops to amaze me. I love taking a walk over the bridge and even enjoy the crowds. If you are a tourist this is the place to go to experience NY and to take some amazing photos. And for the natives, who... More

We got the subway down to Brooklyn and wandered around looking at the old tennaments and chic shops Brooklyn is wonderful and to me is the real New York. We walked over the bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan at dusk which is the best time to see the Manhattan skyline at it's best all lit up. It was a little... More

Ever since I read the history of 'The Great Bridge' I've been determined to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Finally had that opportunity on our recent trip to NYC and I must say, it was one of the highlights of our trip. We caught the subway to the Brooklyn side and walked back, just as the sun was setting and... More

If you are early risers, and are trying to jam in as many NYC sights as possible, considered walking across the Brooklyn Bridge at sunrise. The Bridge is not crowded and the sunrise views are beautiful. You will come across the occasional jogger and a few tourists and locals so don't feel intimidated about being on the Bridge that early.... More

If you are in New York you should see and walk on this beautiful bridge, a must. You get to see the city skyline from a great angle. You can walk ore take a trip on a bike, both can be reconnected.

It can be a bit crowded but so worth checking out this landmark. There is a bike lane and a walking lane. Watch for bikes coming down from the middle of the bridge. We loved the view and captured some beautiful pictures.

I've been reading The Great Bridge by David McCullough and had to stop here on my recent trip to New York City. The architecture of the bridge is gorgeous. The gothic towers really stick out among all of the modern skyscrapers of the city. The vertical and horizontal suspenders connecting the cables to the roadway create a symmetrical web surrounding...
