Enjoyable Bike Ride

We biked across the Brooklyn Bridge (bikes and pedestrians) into Brooklyn, then biked back across the Manhattan Bridge (bikes only, no pedestrians).

A must do whether you're walking or biking! It was pretty crowded on the Sunday of Memorial Weekend - it was also the Bridge's 132rd birthday! Me and my other half biked the bridge, and wandered around Brooklyn and we came back across through the Manhattan bridge. Beautiful day for two bridges.

Oh god, this is an awesome place. You should cross the bridge on the way to Manhattan. Do that after sunset. The sky is colorful and all the skyscrapers are lightened. Be careful, there is a bike line on right side on the way to Manhattan. There are lots of people on the bridge so you can feel a bit... More

Having been born in the Bronx, having grown up on Long Island and having visited Manhattan countless times, we had never walked over the Brooklyn Bridge, so we figured it was time to cross one more attraction off our list. We didn't end up going all the way across, but the views from the bridge are gorgeous, and the architecture... More

What can I say it's the Brooklyn Bridge, a Brooklyn landmark. I can say a bit.......it was a beautiful morning on Long Island so I told the kids "come on let's take a train ride to penn station" which they were all for. When we got there we took a cab outside to the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge,... More

Iconic Brooklyn bridge! Wooden beams and strung up seams! Great views of the skyline. Beware of the cyclists precious cycle lane! While your in the area, check out The Statue of Liberty, 9/11 Memorial, Century 21 & Soho for shopping :)

Walked it with my daughter on Memorial Day. Crowded and busy and hot BUT it far exceeded my expectations. Buy a $1 keychain on the bridge. Beware of bikers and take pictures on way back from Brooklyn. And don't go the same day as us. :)

Having lived in New York a while back and having walked the bridge once, I thought it would be nice 20 years later. And it was, it easy to get to and once you began whether you have multiple stop or not to awe in the scenic view it's a nice experience. Once you get to the other side there's... More

It seems like it will take you forever to get across, but I felt like i could do it three times. The views are so breath taking that you dont even notice youre walking a mile!

This is a great walk. Amazing pictures of the city can be taken from here. Cross over on foot from the NYC side and walk all the way to Brooklyn Heights by the riverside. Wonderful neighborhood and a good picture of the Statue of Liberty from here. You can take the subway back into town.
