Was good to do, but very busy with walkers and bikes going in opposite directions and having to dodge all the picture posers.

We took a walk across Brooklyn Bridge in October 2018. It was filled with tourists and street sellers. Would definitely recommend it!

You will be suprised by Brooklyn Bridge. Nice surprise - there is a separate walkway above the traffic. However three downsides: 1. It is certainly a bigger (longer) trek across than I imagined - but great views out to Statue of Liberty, Manhattan etc 2....More

We took the subway to Brooklyn early(ish) in the morning and walked across the bridge back to Manhattan taking advantage of the great views of the skyline. There is a well defined pedestrian/cycle path segregated from the traffic and ample opportunities to take photographs. A...More

We had a very different experience. The pedestrian level is above the vehicular level. We chose to walk from Manhattan to Brooklyn. They actually closed off a portion of the Bridge pedestrian traffic as well as JFK below due to the UN General Assembly. Streets...More

Worth of taking a walk from other side back to Manhattan. After being here you will watch all NY related movies differently.

Nobody's fault but incredibly busy as a tourist spot, why wouldn't it be, we wanted to visit so why wouldn't hundreds of others. Walk up to bridge is plagued with street vendors on the pedestrian side of the walkway, the other side of the pavement...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.
