It is very nice to be around at night due to the lights making it seem pleasant to stare at. I walked through begging to end and was not bored very busy but it motivates you to go all the way.

With help of the ever courteous and friendly NYPD, we were directed to the staircase that led up to the start of the bridge walk from lower East Side and boy we were not disappointed, what an exhilarating walk. Okay it's busy and the cyclists can be a bit reckless, but that apart, the walk from Manhattan to Brooklyn is... More

My wife and I walked from Brooklyn to Manhattan on a Saturday afternoon. It was a fun walk and they weather was perfect. The views of the skyline were amazing. The only downside is that the bridge does get very crowded. But we navigated the crowds with minimal issues. We can now check this one off our list.

Second time we have walked across Brooklyn Bridge both times from Brooklyn to Manhattan. Great views of Manhattan skyline and looking over to Dumbo (Down under Manhattan bridge overpass). Great photo opportunities....but beware of stepping from pedestrian lane on to cycle lane!!! Great atmosphere with so many tourists and locals.

Even if you're not a tourist from Italy, you will have a great time walking across the Brooklyn Bridge. My wife and I live across the Hudson in New Jersey and have had it on our Fun List for a while; and finally did it a few weeks ago. We started from the Manhattan side and walked east into Brooklyn.... More

This is worth one visit at least. An imposing bridge built way back in 1883 connecting Manhattan & Brooklyn. One can visit is just to look at it from a far or you can walk on it or even cycle. One gets magnificent view of NY city from the bridge.

We had a walk across the bridge in the evening, and it was an amazing walk across the bridge. We combined it with a dinner at The River Cafe across the bridge. A highle recommended walk

I have walked over both during the day and night. Night time is much better as there are less people and the view is better. You will find street vendors selling all kinds of things during the day. It's free plus you're getting some much needed exercise and great views of Manhattan.

I walked the 1.1 mile Brooklyn Bridge both ways, from City Hall Park in lower Manhattan, over to Brooklyn, and back again. I did not have adequate time to walk through Brooklyn on this trip, unfortunately. The views of New York City from the bridge are amazing and a photographer's paradise. There are many vendors selling every kind of souvenir... More
