The walk over Brooklyn bridge, we walked from Brooklyn to Manhattan, was a great way to see the sky line of the City at an easy pace, you appreciate the buildings and also how wide the river is! The decking is very safe but I would advise those with young children to take care with the bicycles that speed over... More

Walking in the bridge is great, specially at night where you can see a great view of the Manhattan Skylines. It's also very nice for cycling.

We had a wonderful walk across this bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan. The views were great and it was not too crowded.

Walking over the Brooklyn Bridge is a really fun thing to do on a sunny, warm day. We timed it so we could see the beautiful light as the sun started to set. There are usually some type of street performers around the area to stop and enjoy.

On a beautiful day, this is a must-do if you like to walk or even cycle. It is a really wonderful, uplifting experience to walk across this bridge. You will do some great people-watching as you stroll. My husband and I walked this bridge today. The weather glorious which meant that the bridge was packed with pedestrians and cyclists. I... More

We caught the subway from Manhattan to High St Station in Brooklyn. Walked across then back again. The view of Manhattan skyline was worth the walk. The bridge is an icon in itself. Very old, and looks it, but so much character. Driving across would be a nightmare but not my problem. Was a fantastic to finally get to see... More

We walked the Brooklyn Bridge on a nice sunny day, hence it was busy. Unfortunately the vendors on the bridge take up some room that is meant for the pedestrians, and the other lane is a cycle lane, so we have to be very careful if we did need to step into the cycle lane to go past the vendors...

If you're visiting Manhattan, a walk across Brooklyn Bridge is a great, free way of getting fabulous views of the Manhattan skyline. It's also a good way to get to the River Cafe in Brooklyn, which is a good place to go for Sunday brunch. It will take you about 30-40 minutes to walk across the bridge if you want... More

As you get closer to the arch, stop and just look up and around, it's so picturesque - but watch out behind you there may be a jogger, biker, or someone in rush to get who knows where ;-)
