    The Best Views of NY!
    This was the best experience. We had a clear sunny day to walk from Brooklyn back to Manhattan across the bridge. Great views. Lots of reasonable souvenirs for sale. Drinks and snacks available too. A wonderful way to see the views

    Night Walk
    I tried to aim to walk on this bridge for sunset but arrived a little too late so only caught the beginning of it which was still beautiful. I haven't walked it during the day yet but it was quite beautiful at night with all the city lights. The recommended way to do it is to walk it from Brooklyn towards Manhattan. It was quite busy and difficult to get pictures without other people in them, but still a lovely experience. It gets cold at night so bring warm clothes.

    Great day on the Brooklyn Bridge
    We toured with Inside Out Tours LLC and it was a great tour. Our guide, Kevin was excellent and he was originally from Manhattan and was able to add additional insight into the City. He was extremely knowledgeable of the history of Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge. He had a pleasing personality, was very well prepared, professional in every manner and was able to deliver his information to a diverse group with clarity and, at times, a bit of humor. My wife and I came away from the tour with a great deal of new information about the Brooklyn Bridge thanks to Kevin. I don’t know if it’s possible to request a tour guide when making a reservation but Kevin would be an excellent choice.

    Well worth the walk
    We knew from other posts that we needed to take a picture of the Empire State Building through the arches of this bridge from DUMBO, and then we decided to walk to the other side and purchase a few things from the stalls on the bridge. we are so glad we did this as the views, sites, sounds and smells are soooooo worth it. The entrance to the bridge is a little hard to find but so worth the time to find it. It is another amazing thing that New York has to offer. GO DO IT!!!you wont regret it

    Will always stay in Brooklyn now
    Beautiful breath of fresh air in the tumultuous city that is New York. In Brooklyn right on the park with beautiful views of skyline. Hotel was clean and so climate friendly!! Bed was comfortable. Shower good hot water...loved the timer in shower to remind u you may be in the wasting water time frame. Proud to say never overstayed. Restaurants right in house with patio seating so your dog can sit with you. ( It is dog friendly!!) Needs to be seen to truly be appreciated. Neighborhood with many restaurants in walking distance. And of course you can walk across Brooklyn Bridge.

    Must see
    After visiting New York multiple times, I was finally able to walk across the bridge. Started from Brooklyn to have the city skyline in front of me. The bridge is beautiful and so are the views. There is information on the history and construction along the walk. Nice plaque to Emily Washington who oversaw the completion of construction after her husband fell ill.

    Worth going early
    Get the subway to the DUMBO area and enjoy the views back across to NYC then finish with a walk back across the bridge. There is a Timeout near the bridge where we purchased doughnuts and coffee which we enjoyed looking across to the bridge. Brooklyn is very quiet early in the morning.

    Beautiful views, busy during sunset
    Lovely views of the city especially when visiting during sunset hours. Can get quite busy around this time so you have to weigh up whether you prefer it to be quieter or prefer the sunset views. We subwayed to dumbo then walked back into the city over the bridge which was a good distance and a lovely way to spend the evening.

    Walk the Brooklyn Bridge
    This is a fun walk if you've never been to New York before. It is kind of long and there isn't a great way to just do it quickly. We ended up walking about a third of it and then walking back. It's right by a subway stop which is nice, so you can easily get there. There's tons of vendors all along the bridge, so don't stop at the first thing you see, keep walking to see what's all there. Lots of people trying to get influencer shots too

Its blend of Gothic arches and granite-faced, limestone piers felt both historic and majestic. We took our time, snapping photos and admiring the steel-framed structure. Tip: go early or late to avoid the biggest crowds, and don't miss the views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty from the bridge! A must-do for any visitor to New York City.

It's really impressive with beautiful views of the skyline and lots of picture opportunities; the only problem is I went on christmas day and it was almost impossible to walk. There was a guy taking some pictures with his camera and we took the chance; I'm glad we did otherwise we wouldn't have any pictures. I will definitely like to visit again.

It is the summary of New York City. You should walk on the bridge by taking magnificent photos. If you wanna take professional photos, you can get them by the professional ones who are walking around. It is just 10$ for 5 photos. You can get some discount by making bargain. While you are on the bridge, you can see the Manhattan, Ellis Island, Liberty Statue and Brooklyn. The crossing the bridge by walking is free. Enjoy your glorious time.

Its roadway gracefully spans the East River, connecting Brooklyn to Manhattan. The intricate network of steel cables supporting this iconic structure is a testament to 19th-century engineering brilliance. A professional’s delight, the Brooklyn Bridge stands tall, bridging history and modernity.
