Did this walk on one of the hotter days in NYC, was a fab walk, about an hour over and back if you went straight over and back, but with all the stopping and people traffic it takes a little longer. The bridge was beautiful, such a fantastic structure. The city skyline comes into view straight away by about mid... More

This a great place to visit. Get off on the High Street subway stop and walk down under. Or get off at Jay Street and walk to the foot of the bridge or walk on over. Although I did not walk over the bridge this trip, I did walk down to the pier where so many movies have been shot.... More

If you visit the city, this is a must stop place. There are amazing views of the city. You can walk across the bridge and enjoy the view. A lot of people do this to commute to work on a daily basis. So you can expect large groups of people. I would recommend starting in Brooklyn so you end up... More

My daughter and I walked across the bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan. It's an absolutely amazing view, as you walk towards the Manhattan skyline. The bridge is peppered with people selling cold beverages and lots of historical markers. Perfect view and perfect walking route.

I walked the bridge it wasn't to long and anyone can do it. It was good that they designated one side of the walkway to bikes and the other to pedestrians. The architecture of the bridge is beautiful and walking along the bridge you see unique views of New York , other bridges, and also different views of the bridge.... More

Nothing beats just walking across the Brooklyn Bridge on a bright morning day. The architecture of the bridge is just fascinating, with so much character and history. And provides so many scenic views of the city landscape. Just a must for anyone who visits New York City

Better to start from the Brooklyn side and see amazing views of the Manhattan Skyline. I walked at dusk and the lights were wonderful and I was doe eyed the whole time. Make sure to stay away from the bike lane though.

We walked across the bridge just to say we did while visiting NYC. There were great views of South Manhattan from the bridge which provided great photo opportunities. There is plenty of space for pedestrians to walk and ride a bike across as well

We actually used Wiliamsburg bridge to go over & Brooklyn to go back. It has got amazing views of the city but it really is packed with locals, runners, tourists & cyclists. It's hard to get a good view without someone being in your picture. However the bridge is gorgeous & it's worth an afternoon walk.
