It's a nice place to visit, it might be crowded but you can take nice pics and enjoy the walk, I do recommend going to DUMBO after crossing the bridge though

We walked across the the bridge and the spectacular view of New York is a feast to your eyes. Too many people on bicycles which is annoying.

We walked most of the way across the bridge. There is a lot of foot traffic and lots of bikes too. It’s worth it for the view and to say that you’ve done it

We walked over Brooklyn bridge and loved the view of the New York skyline from the middle of the bridge. We also had lunch in Brooklyn which was lovely.

Lovely to walk over during the day, have a wander around Brooklyn and return over at sunset. The views are fabulous. Little strange not seeing the twin towers anymore but the new tower next door and all the many additions to the skyline are spectacular...More

My wife and I decided to stroll over the Brooklyn Bridge. Even though thousands of locals and tourists do this all the time, I was surprised by what a cool feeling it was.

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.
