Has got to be done, we caught the ferry from pier 11 Wall Street to Dumbo which is the name of the park area by Brooklyn ferry stop. Then amazingly we found a rooftop bar at the ONE hotel (11th floor) quite by chance, read at the waterfront then did the 20 to 30 minute walk over the bridge back to Manhattan. Wonderful ...... just keep an eye out for cycles coming past you, there's separate lanes for walkers and cyclists.

Love the walk over the Brooklyn Bridge.
Great views of the city.
Only (unavoidable) downside is the crowds.
Would happily do this every visit.

Read the book (The Great Bridge by David McCullough). Get to Brooklyn about 30 minutes before sunset. Walk the bridge to Manhattan. It will warm your heart, and your soul. You haven't visited NYC until you've "walked the walk." Trust me on this one.

There is a bike shop close to the bridge, it was $15 per bike per hour. An hour is enough time to cross the bridge and back. You can stop along the way to take photos and appreciate its beauty. Please be advised that some people do not pay attention to the bike lane and enjoy walking on it. You have to be very careful and make sure you don't hit anyone. BUT its great fun to do. Walking is also permitted if its your preference.

Having just finished David McCullough's "The Great Bridge", walking the bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn was particularly engaging. Opened in 1883; the design, beauty, and history of the great bridge takes your breath away. Walk slowly and savor the views from dozens of points and angles. A photo paradise; there were 3 newlyweds in photo shoots along the way, plus hundreds of group photos and selfies. What a treat for the senses!
