It might be a little bit overrated, but it's pretty cool. I took a limo over Brooklyn Bridge the other side, and took some night pictures under it, it was pretty neat! But like I said, overrated and very hyped.

I picked a random day to walk the bridge. I crossed it during the middle of a fundraiser. Even still, it is a relatively short crossing-- about 25-30 minutes, and the view of Manhattan is beautiful. I didn't bring a camera, but it is worth the hike, just for the mental pictures. I love Brooklyn.

On a cold (and windy) day we set off to walk the Brooklyn Bridge, and the chill almost stopped me several times. It's not a fast walk, with the path from the Brooklyn side spanning a good 3/4 miles even before you reach the bridge (and that part along the freeway and not pretty). If you brave the walk, the...

In winter time, 3pm~4pm is very good time to spend with girl friend or family. River cafe is near Brooklyn Bridge is so cool restaurant for lunch and dinner. It needs making reservation.

Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspension bridges in North America, built in the late 19th century across the East river connecting Brooklyn with Manhattan . Take a leisurely walk on the bridge, particularly in evening for a memorable experience. It is crowded with tourists, walkers, joggers ,runners and cyclists, but what an amazing experience. A stroll on the... More

The walk over the Brooklyn bridge is a nice experience. It should be done on a sunny day when the temperature is ove 70 degrees. The Manhattan views.are magnificent.

This is a must for the first time visitor to NYC. Try to cross the bridge early in the morning. Grab a cup of joe and enjoy the views of Manhattan while you walk.

If you are visiting NYC, definitely take a walk here. Apart from enjoying the walk on huge metal structure, you can get a glimpse of a statue of liberty from here and see tall buildings of NYC.

I know that every man and his dog writes a review on the Bridge, but It really is good! As I am not good with heights, I was reluctant to do this. I had also read other reviews re the number of over zealous cyclists trying to co-habitate in a limited space with the walkers. I have the solution! Go... More

One of the best ways to spend a pleasant afternoon in NYC. Take the subway to the first stop in Brooklyn and walk back over ther Bridge to Manhattan. Make sure you stay out of the bike lane as you'll risk your life and look like a tourist. The views of the city are fantastic and you can grab a... More
