We walked from the Brooklyn side towards Manhattan so we could see view - amazing! But watch out for cyclists, they go pretty quick so keep you the pedestrian side of the path. Also take plenty of water if its hot because it's a long walk in the sun!

This is always at the top of my list when people ask for NYC trip recommendations. It's stunning and it's free! I like to do the walk at night when the city is lit-up, walking from Brooklyn towards Manhattan. One tip - when walking, stay out of the bike lane - the natives like to yell expletives at unknowing tourists... More

Great views and a nice walkway. The distance is short and it gives you commanding views of the Manhattan skyline.

We decided to take the subway over to Brooklyn and walk over to Manhattan. It turned out to be a great idea. We got to the bridge around 9:30 AM and it was already packed. Make sure to stay in your lane if you are walking or cycling. There are 2 devided lanes for this purpose. The skyline is magnificent.... More

Majestic. Fun promenade along East River. Old brick buildings will soon have even more boutiques, restaurants, art galleries.

Take the subway to High St on the A-C line and follow the signs from the station to the bridge. It's a glorious walk back to Manhattan with stunning views. Highly recommend and unlike so many attractions in NYC, it's free!

I walked from Manhattan to Brooklyn over the Brooklyn Bridge on a beautiful sunny morning and joined the many walkers, cyclists and roller bladers enjoying the Bridge Safe well maintained pedestrian path coupled with stunning views of Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges made this a very memorable experience. Highly recommended.
