We walked across the bridge from the manhattan side to Dumbo (there is a metro stop right by the start of the manhattan side - we used the Green 6 stop). The walk itself takes about half an hour and the views of the bridge itself and the skyline change all the time with the traffic below you. This is... More

Joined the tours by foot tour. Had a knowledgeable guide Katherine Weatherford. She gave detailed and lively narration of the history of the bridge. View of the Manhattan skyline was stunning on a sunny winter day. As it was winter there wasn't much of a crowd

We have seen several photos and videos of this bridge, but nothing prepared ourselves for the magic experience of visiting the Brooklyn Bridge. We went by car, finding a place to park is quite challenging, so be prepared to walk at less 5-6 blocks away. For those who love photograpy the best hours are by the end of the day,... More

Gorgeous bridge. Fun thing to do. Conquered my fear of bridges. Easy to do and free. Can't beat that!

Such an easily accessible and free view in NYC. Benches to sit on halfway across and the views are spectacular. Walked here after visiting Chinatown and the 9/11 Memorial. Very pedestrian friendly.

It's totally worth the walk from Brooklyn to Manhattan, you get a beautiful view of Manhattan Skyline, the walk is not as long as some would say, maybe 1 hour walk. it's kind of a tight walk at some points, but nothing too risky just watch out for the bikes.

Whenever I go to New York, I always go to Brooklyn Bridge Park for my photography. I would love to sit and see the sunset. Walk along the river and do my favourite activities such as looking for something new, taking photograph, cycling around the city and etc. This is a must see spot for those who want to know... More

See the sunset over Manhatten. Total bucket list moment and it's free. Unforgettable experience. Can't visit New York and not do this.

I am told the bridge is about a mile walk. It can be confusing to get to the entrance and some nice lady helped us when our gps failed us. The weather was absolutely beautiful for a February day. The skyline is amazing and watching the boats pass is fun. Seating along the way to stop, sit and rest. Nice... More

The walk is lovely, crowded, but what do you expect? Seeing the different skylines as you walk across is really cool. And we went on a bright sunny day, so it was particularly beautiful in my opinion.
