excellent view
Oct 2021
We took an uber to the park from manhattan. We stopped at the park to take pictures, then we walked back on the bridge to Manhattan. Not that far, 15/20 min walk on the bridge with picture taking! Excellent pictures from the park of the bride!

Bike across the Brooklyn Bridge
Oct 2021
There is bike path and it's very safe to bike across the bridge , there is some bike paths in Brooklyn, but if biking by the port, please note that the bike lane isn't designated very well and many of the bike markings are faded.

A great walk with views
Sep 2021
We walked from Manhattan to Brooklyn in the afternoon, it was crowded. The bridge is beautiful, I took a lot of pictures of the bridge with Manhattan skyline. From the bridge, you can see Manhattan skyline, Manhattan bridge and Statue of Liberty which is far away.

So glad we did this!

Iconic. This was on the list of things to-do on our first visit to NY but we weren’t really sure what to do or how long it would take to walk it’s about a mile long from start to finish. My husband and I walked from the Brooklyn side to Manhattan. While pet of the bridge was under construction there was plenty of room to leisurely walk, stop and take pictures, or just slow down and enjoy the view. Bikes have their own path/lane down below so the top of the bridge is open to walker, joggers, etc. I’m so glad we decided to walk the bridge. Definitely a view/memory you won’t regret!

Good for photos of the Manhattan skyline
Sep 2021
For good views, I would suggest coming at dawn (not many people) or dusk (busier) or night-time. I went at dawn (take the subway to High St and walk up the staircase to get to the middle of the bridge quicker) and it was sparely populated with mainly joggers. Contrary to some older guides, bike path is currently separated, so you can meander on the walkway as much as you want. You will also get some good views of the Manhattan bridge. The Statue of Liberty is visible, but still quite a distance away.

Beautiful bridge with great views
Sep 2021
We walked over the bridge and it was worth it. The views are great. You see the Statue of Liberty on one side and a different bridge on the other. You also get a great view of the One World Trade Center and more. Also, the Dumbo area is a great place to take a pic of the Bridge. The downside is the crowd – a lot of people walk or bike across the bridge.

A famous NYC bridge.
Sep 2021 • Family
Another top landmark in NYC to tick off the bucket list. We got some great family photos here. That’s about it if your visiting NYC. Take your to & from Manhattan to Brooklyn and there are venders all around selling overpriced souvenirs.

Great Walkway / Photo Op

we walked the full length of the bridge to get from Manhattan to Brooklyn, about a mile walk, and took some really cute pictures of the Lower East Side / Brooklyn area. So cute!

Walk over it!
Sep 2021
It's beautiful, iconic, and so walkable. Our kids had an amazing time and the view of Manhattan is incomparable. There's a new bike path, so walkers have a lot of space.
