This is such a beautiful bridge. Highly recommend walking the bridge. However, avoid the middle of the day in the summer and make sure to bring water. There is no shade and can be unbelievably hot.

Go in the winter and dead of night or early am. Otherwise avoid at all course. Or maybe the brooklyn side tower is less crowded.

It's a good walk to cross the bridge - SOOO crowded. I can't understand why they have a huge lane for bicycles and a little sliver for pedestrians when most of the people are walking. Anyway, it was super hot and like I said, crowded...More

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis

Should not be a problem. Just avoid the bike path and be considerate of others walking on the bridge as the weekends tend to be quite busy.
