Of course this bridge is very impressive, we also walked over the bridge what we can recommend - but yes: It's New York and super busy.

It was nice to walk just an iconic structure and also read about the history of it and how it came to be. Offers some nice views as well. Good to do once.

As a local and naive NY'r I’ve never walked the bridge. It wasn’t until I started doing photography as a hobby I thought it be cool to start doing tourist stuff. Best recommendation 7/8 am you have the bridge to yourself

I lived in NYC for years and years and never did this walk. So when my daughter and I were there in June, I dragged her along. We started on the Manhattan side, because we were going to a WNBA game at Barclays that evening. Beautiful views!

One of the absolute best free attractions in NYC is walking over the Brooklyn bridge.
It connects lower Manhattan with Brooklyn and is the oldest, most famous and most beautiful bridge - a NYC icon and landmark.
TIP: more interesting is to walk from Brooklyn to Manhattan as the NYC skyline is constantly in front of you.

After you walk across and take photos, go to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade for views of Lower Manhattan.

We used to always have to watch for bikes while walking the bridge because bikers were aggressive and real angry when walkers would be in the bike lane. This time we noticed bikers were below us and none were on the walking bridge. So much better without bikers!

No doubt this is a must when in NYC great walk but a lot of people around. You can buy cheap and fake souvenirs (mostly bad quality) on the way to the bridge. You can reach it easily with the subway.

Well worth it - make the effort - amazing views and great photo spots, try a drink at harriets roof top as well - Dumbo is a great start - Pier 11 ferry across at 2.75 dollars!

Whilst in New York we had to take a walk over Brooklyn Bridge (and walked back over Manhattan Bridge). At the start there are plenty of stalls which means that there are several "pinch points" for pedestrians. But it is well worth the effort to get some fantastic views.
