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

I think we might have walked the bridge at the busiest part of the day because it seemed like there were thousands of people, but the walk is well worth it. We started in Brooklyn and walked towards Manhattan. The view of the skyline is amazing. When you stop to stare, just be certain you aren't in the bike lane... More

Walked across the Brooklyn Bridge today with a friend. It was an easy walk from the Brooklyn Bridge / city hall subway station. The walk itself isn't too bad and the climb isn't too steep. Have to watch out for cyclists of you walk close to the cyclist lane. This is a great FREE tourist attraction to see and a... More

Dumbo is near the Brooklyn Bridge and affords a magnificent view of the East River, statue of Liberty and Manhattan. The Brooklyn bridge is perfectly seen from here. With the carousel, ice cream, and tables sling the river, it's a great hang out spot with our without your dogs.

Always a struggle to find the entrance. From Brooklyn, walk up Adams Street but look for the marked pedestrian walkway. We only walked up to the first bridge support this time as you get the best view from there in both directions. Always worth doing.

The Brooklyn bridge in wonderful, fabulous and way to crowded. The crowds and vendors have made this New York landmark a place to avoid rather than visit. If you must go try a nighttime visit walking from Brooklyn to Manhattan. The view is outrageous.

As a New Yorker, I have to say I wouldn't cross the bridge unless I absolutely have to. It is crowded with tourist, very narrow, and bikes flying all over. If you're a tourist, it is iconic so I would recommend it BUT prepare for a not so pleasant experience based on my descriptions above
