The natural inclination is to walk towards the East River to access the walking path over the bridge. Bad idea. On the Manhattan side the way up is near City Hall. The walk is nice albeit crowded. Lots of bikes on the bridge as well. Great activity.

Who hasn't heard of the Brooklyn Bridge? Walking over it is the way to go to get the full benefit of the stunning views of Manhattan. You can cycle over it on an organised tour or under your own steam with a hired bike but I personally prefer to walk, spending more time looking around than concentrating on cycling (I'm... More

We rode the subway to Brooklyn to walk around and decided to walk across the bridge to get back. It was a beautiful day, not too hot, with a breeze. The views from the bridge are amazing, and t's a great place for photos. The bridge has so much history, and was breathtaking to see. The architecture was very well... More

We walked across the bridge on a sunny October morning: A nice walk, and fantastic views of the Manhattan skyline. When you get to the other side there is a a very pleasant park. If you are visiting Brooklyn I would also recommend having a wander round the nearby Dumbo neighbourhood (arty and hipster) and visiting the Brooklyn Flea market... More

Walked over Brooklyn bridge I can safely say I have done but no different to any other bridge on this planet. It's all part of the experience one might say so just go and do it 👌

Best to go when the weather is clear to appreciate the great views on both sides of the Bridge. Fabulous photo opportunities. This visit, there were renovation works going on and a pedestrian lane was narrowed and used by the cyclist who zoom across the bridge!

I've walked over several famous bridges in the US and this is my favorite. Beautiful views, great photo spots and a lively diverse crowd of walkers. The wooden walkway exudes history and nastalgia. You definitely get a turn of the century feel walking over this bridge. One thing I really appreciate is the length. Compared to the other bridges I've... More
