Who says NYC has to be expensive? If the weather is nice, take a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. It's an easy walk, it's fun and it's free (unless you want to buy it). We've done it several times over the years and have always enjoyed it. There are a lot of people walking or biking the bridge most of... More

This is one of the iconic bridges in NYC and I can't believe you can walk the entire length and they don't even charge you like all the other attractions in the city. Of course, it was a beautiful warm day with only moderate wind. When we arrived in Brooklyn we found Grimaldi's Pizza for a nice meal then we... More

Took subway into Brooklyn, then walked back across the bridge. The views of both Brooklyn and Manhattan from the middle of the bridge are fantastic, especially for the new WTC tower. Only downside is the lanes to walk and bike are too narrow, so there are some close calls with cyclists.

Over the years, many visitors have joined us in NYC and we have taken each one on a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Day or night, any season of the year, always the same wonderful views of the city from the bridge and always the jaw dropping experience of seeing this 19th century engineering marvel from atop the walking path.

My NYC Bucket list included walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, which we did early one weekend morning. It was exhilarating, stunning, and fabulous. This is a must do on my list for every trip to NYC from now on.

Went there on our 2nd day in NYC, with a friend who had been in NYC for 20 years but never been there!. The bridge is really crowded, on a Sunday afternoon, but watching the crowd is in itself an activity... Great view of the city.

I have seen countless pictures of the beautiful New York City skyline. But nothing can really prepare you for what you are about to see what you walk across the bridge. I would suggest sensible footwear as it is quite a long walk over the bridge but everyone is really excited. It is heigh up so be prepared for that.... More

You don't have to be an engineer to appreciate this incredible structure - awesome architecture, beautiful views, easily accessible by mass transit and it's free! Yes it's full of tourists and you may have to dodge a bike or two but it's worth it. And don't try climbing the cables :)

Would never have believed that walking across a bridge towards a huge towering city could be so amazing!! We loved the vibe walking across and the views that we were able to take in along the way. Just felt like we truly were experiencing an unforgettable part of New York with vendors at either end and even at the centre... More

I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge - went and had the best ever pizza and walked back across the Brooklyn Bridge. It is a real experience - painters, street performers and people watching galore! Not to mention the world famous view and the right to say, "I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge!" Some things ya just gotta do and this... More
