I liked the view and the walk. What an impressive bridge. I appreciated the police stationed along at least three places along the bridge. The separate bicycle and pedestrian lanes were nice. I feel sad that people feel like breaking the law and placing locks on this dear structure to proclaim their undying love. It is New York and not... More

Nothing to dislike about except for dumb people but hey,arent they everywhere? They should watch out for bikers a little more. Its a great walking path from brooklyn to Manhattan to see the sunset in the island. Beautiful

You've got to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge on your visit. Iconic and a great photo opportunity too. We ended up having a good day in Brooklyn and I also had what is quite possibly the best slice of pizza I have come across. (The Vodka slice from Mama Mia). Cheap shopping to be had there too..

This is an easy and enjoyable walk, although you should watch out for bikers and probably start out early because it gets crowded. The views are amazing - Manhattan Skyline, Freedom Tower, Statue of Liberty and several other bridges.

This bridge is very historic and was built in 1875. This is the perfect place to experience the history of Brooklyn as well as the views. The only downside to it is when I went it was cold and windy on the bridge. So bundle up if it's winter.

You can get great pics of Manhattan, you feel like In a movie scene. You may want to bike around. It's really worth the visit.

I love walking around in New York city overall, but Brooklyn Bridge is something extra. That view over the city is amazing.
