Never forget that bridges connect people. That's the reason I love them, and more if they are historical and with a nostalgic looking. There is no way that you miss it if you visit NYC.

It's a great looking bridge and really accessible. I was staying in Manhattan when I decided to go hear. There's a train station nearby which would take you only a few walks away from the attraction. There's an area/lane available for people and bikes. One visit to this place is enough. Unless you really need to pass over.

On the way back from visiting Coney Island we got off the subway in Brooklyn and walked back to Manhattan over the Brooklyn bridge. I was great to see the bridge up close as the tourist buses aren't allowed over it. It's definitely worth a visit. Just make sure you keep your wits about you and don't stray into the... More

I've walked across the bridge at least a dozen times, but not in many years. This time we had first time visitors to NYC and the Brooklyn Bridge was one of many attractions they wanted to see. We took the 2 (red) subway from Manhattan to the Clark Street station. The 3 (red) line also stops there. It is very... More

If you come to New York then you have to walk across and back the Brooklyn Bridge. Fantastic views and a chance to admire this iconic structure- in your face, so to speak. Early morning or evening is the best time. Takes about an hour, but visit the park area near the bridge in Brooklyn if you can.

Go in the morning to just sit, have coffee and relax; go in the evening to see the best view of the NYC skyline.

We went later in the day. Bicycles on one side, people walking on the other side. You have to be aware so you don't get hit by a bicycle while not paying attention. Lots of people with Selfie Sticks, I think going early might be better

If you are looking for the view you often see in movies, here is the place. Personally, I like to go there at dusk. It's like 30 minutes walking on the bridge back and forth. So take pictures of the bridge when you go to the Brooklyn side, you could also hanging out at the Brooklyn bridge park right next... More

This is my favorite bridge in New York City. I love everything about it and no visit to the Big Apple would be complete without crossing it, especially from Brooklyn to Manhattan at sunset. Never fails to amaze!

We went for a walk over the bridge having gone to Brooklyn on the subway, which is recommended. Amazing views of lower Manhattan, Statue of Liberty. Don't forget some water and keep to the pedestrian lane - some fast cyclists in the other lane!
