Even though we went to nyc for Valentine's Day weekend which meant it was absolutely freezing being on the Brooklyn bridge for sunset was so beautiful. Being so cold it was the perfect time of year to see the bridge almost devoid of people. The architecture of this bridge is awe inspiring with an amazing view of the Manhattan bridge... More

Nice views of Manhattan skyline walking from Brooklyn side but very crowded. Not enough room for pedestrians and the bikers will knock you over if you step on their side of the lane.

We walked the bridge today 2nd May 2015. It was a warm sunny Saturday and at about 1pm the bridge was full of people. Most of the way the crowds spilled across into the bike lane and we saw a few collisions between cyclists and pedestrians and dozens of close calls. At peak times be prepared for lots of people...

We decided to take the Subway to Brooklyn High St where it is only a 10 minute walk via a homemade sign to join the walkway. If you are joining from the other side head for Its New York City Hall on the map as otherwise I can be quite confusing of how to get up there. Once on the... More

You've seen it since grammar school of the cover of your social studies book... Now walk across from Manhattan city hall to Brooklyn and see what all the hype is about. Truly spectacular and beautiful.

Take the subway to the far side of the bridge and then walk back across the bridge. What a view, it has got to be one of the best in the world. It will be crowded during peak hours but that just adds to the buzz. Why not add on a stroll through Chinatown and Little Italy as they are... More

We started our NYC site seeing by visiting Brooklyn bridge first. We booked parking near to Brooklyn bridge in a week advance for whole day. I am not a history buff so I do not know much history about it but I loved walking on that bridge with great view of the city along with the river. You can even... More

It was a cold & windy day in February when we decided to walk to Brooklyn and back. No matter - the views and experience are well worth no matter the weather (well maybe not in a thunderstorm -- it is an all metal bridge...)

I would recommend walking from Brooklyn to Manhattan as most of the "views" are in that direction. An A train stop is just 100 yds. across a park from the start of the pedestrian section of the bridge. It's fun, great views and some interesting people-watching! And there's another subway stop just by the Manhattan end of the bridge. The... More
