If your bucket list includes walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, then just do it. It can be crowded on a Sunday afternnon. Then again, what better way to walk off a good meal that you just had in the Brooklyn area? I wasn't expecting my views to be obstruicted by the support wires. Even still, you do get some great...

Been walking across the bridge in the night, to get a nice pizza in Brooklyn. The views across the nightly Manhattan skyline are just wonderful.

We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge while in New York last autumn. It gives you an amazing view of Manhattan and is a really lovely walk in its own right. Would definitely recommend!

A fun thing to do while visiting the city. Took the subway over and walked across the bridge. Got the best pictures of the New York skyline while there.
