Eventually found the pedestrian entrance to the bridge on Manhattan side. Big crowds, cyclists, tourists and loving couples taking selfies. The bridge's infrastructure obscures some great photo opportunities but there are still plenty available. Good exercise post lunch in Wall Street area. Not up there with Gold Gate but still one of the iconic bridges. Bring lunch and have it... More

A lovely view of Manhattan. A popular walk, with lots of tourists. I went with two of my girlfriends from NYC, because walking the Brooklyn Bridge has been on both of their bucket lists. Lots of selfie sticks and great photo ops. Hot on a NY summer afternoon, but there is a breeze up on the bridge. Not many people... More

The Brooklyn Bridge remains an iconic fixture in New York City and in a word, it's wonderful. However, expect crowds, big crowds, shoulder to shoulder crowds. It does take away from some of the magic. Best to go early or late.

The walk was long but the site was nice. Watch out for people on bikes makes sure you pay attention to signs so you dont get ran over.

We decide to walk from Manhattan towards Brooklyn and we were not disappointed. The view on the skyline is marvelous and breathtaking. The only disadvantage by doing the walk this way is, that you must walk a little bit to much to take the subway back to Manhattan.

This is a great place for taking photos. As you cross the bridge you get a sense of how high buildings are in Manhattan. Everyone on the bridge is snapping away which infuriates the bike riders as they have to dodge the walkers, we all have one side to walk in and bikes have the otherside. They have now taken... More

A definitely must do for the New York City experience. The view is worth the walk across it and there is something to do and see on each side of the bridge

Apart from dodging cyclists, locals, routists, self sticks, people taking selfies and pics of others - it was great. Did it at sunset - which I would recommend if you don't want to wake up early for sunrise
