Gets busy, try to stay to the pedestrian side. We walked over from NY and back again. Would consider a bike next time. Wanted to go at dusk as heard it is meant to be even better then with the sun setting but as we were in the area went a little earlier than hope. Great for seeing the NY... More

It's a great spot in the city not only for its shape but also for its views. It worth walking a little bit more and visit it. It's also closed to Wall Street and the 9/11 memorial. So I'll suggest to do it all together!

We caught the water taxi to Brooklyn and walked back to Manhattan using the Brooklyn Bridge, it was a lovely way to spend the afternoon and the views over the city were great. The only issue we had was the other people! Many of the bridge users seemed to be unable to recognise a picture of a walking man or... More

Walking the pedestrian walkway over the Brooklyn bridge was high on my to do list for NYC. I took the subway from Grand Central Terminal (train 4 to Brooklyn Bridge Stop..make sure you get on the downtown train). Easy to find from the subway station....just follow the mass of people!! Have you ever seen on TV or in person the... More

Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge should be a must-do on every NYC itinerary. It offers some breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline and is a peaceful reprieve from the hustle and bustle, albeit the traffic remains directly beneath you on the freeway. Walk across to Brooklyn, then take the subway back into the city. Tip: Make sure you stay out... More

It was a perfect sunny day in December when we walked the Brooklyn Bridge. We caught the blue subway from Uptown to High Street station on the Brooklyn side. From there it is a short walk downhill to Brooklyn Bridge Park. It was unreal to take in the iconic views of Manhattan across the East River. From there we walked... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the walk from NYC to Brooklyn and back. Bridge is very pretty architecturally. Many picture opportunities.

We loved everything about it! The views of Manhattan skyline were breathtaking. Once on the Brooklyn side, we made our way down to the waterfront and relaxed, ate some pizza and ice cream and enjoyed the view. Then we walked back and enjoyed every moment of it! It was super windy that day, so that was kind of annoying, but... More
