You can get great pics of Manhattan, you feel like In a movie scene. You may want to bike around. It's really worth the visit.

I love walking around in New York city overall, but Brooklyn Bridge is something extra. That view over the city is amazing.

The Brooklyn bridge seems to be a staple for any first timers. Walked across it on a chilly November day. Definitely recommend doing that when it's warm instead :). Great views though

Another must see of New York. Lovely to walk across and the views are stunning. Obviously a very busy bridge and it's quite narrow. There's a bike lane taking half of it up and people stopping all over to take pictures. Not much more to say really!

Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan was a great experience. Viewing this remarkable structure while walking across and seeing Manhattan in the process was a fabulous experience.

After visiting WTC1 and the memorial I was already close enough to the bridge to walk over to it. There quite a lot of people also walking on the bridge in both directions and the walkway is narrow BUT it was not over-crowded or uncomfortable. You get great views of both Manhattan and Brooklyn - and it's free!

It's was on my list of places to go on my next trip to nyc and I can honestly say it was a lovely walk with great views of the city. Didn't have time to explore Brooklyn but it's on the list for a future visit! We done the walk on a Sunday morning and it wasn't busy at all.... More
