“Great view and nice, raised wooden ped path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

If you have some time to kill, do it. The views are gorgeous. When on the other side, go to Grimaldi's for a pizza pie. There are heaps of bikers zooming by, so watch out.

“Something free in NY!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

It was better than expected. We went in January when it was about 15 degrees and windy and it was still great. Everyone there is a tourist, so people are more than willing to take pictures if you ask. Best of all is only cost about $5 for the 2 of us to take the subway there! Great views at dusk!

“a great little walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I walked both ways on the bridge. I found the walk from Manhattan towards Brooklyn the better walk, the view is better.
That said, the walk towards Manhattan gives a good view of the Mies Van der Rohr building.

“One of New York's best experiences”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Exactly as the title says. A brilliant experience, not to be missed. Catch the underground to Brooklyn and walk back across to see the Manhattan skyline, and views of the river.

“Nice, long walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Went for a walk from Manhattan to Brooklyn over the bridge. I've wanted to do this for a while, and it was great. Fantastic view of the Manhattan skyline, which was even better since we went around sunset... great photos!
