A long walk with lots of views to see along the way. Lots of seating along the bridge if you want a rest

This is a must-do when visiting NYC. Try and visit in quiet times eg non-weekends and walk from Brooklyn back across in to Manhattan, it's the best view for sure - you'll be sorry if you don't ! For the good of everyone, stay out...More

Nice bridge and great views of the other side of the city. Worth going for a walk along the seafront where the ferry stops too. Brooklyn heights cannot be accessed at this moment from the seafront due to repair works. You can even see Liberty...More

Brooklyn Bridge gives you an ideal NYC experience and includes both the Manhattan and Brooklyn boroughs. If you start at the Brooklyn side you have DUMBO to explore as well! Food, park, views, carousel, all kinds of things to do. As you cross the bridge...More

Walked over the bridge - so did 1,000s other tourists. Very busy. Poor cyclists have hard time, would advise people to walk if visiting or go really early if cycling the bridge. Great walk around Brooklyn and good views of Manhatten from Brooklyn.

It's a busy and noisy walk across the bridge but worthwhile. The views you get of the Manhattan skyline are superb (both at night and during the day) Oh - and the bridge itself is quite a structure...

Starting at City Hall you begin your walk onto this iconic bridge. It is a busy commute across with separate lanes for walking and cycling. The stunning views of downtown Manhattan are just brilliant. Fantastic photo ops and you feel part of a film set...More

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis

We did the same thing! We were stopping in Times Square too! Clarke Street was the subway stop we went to in Brooklyn - the bridge is signposted from the station. I think it took about 1.5 hours to walk back... More

We are two people in our mid 70's and did this walk with ease. We did this on a weekend and it was busy, but whenever it got busy we just stopped and took in the views.
