Very crowded and popular walk. Sometimes people also walk on the bike lane, that you really should avoid.

Went here on an afternoon and it was very busy. The walk across was nice and there are beautiful views of the city. Good photo taking spots and everyone was quite friendly. Would recommend if you’re looking for a nice stroll!

This is a must go when you are in NYC. The view is very beautiful and to get a even more beautiful view, you should go to see the sunset. It is amazing!

By walking across the Brooklyn Bridge you can see the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn skylines which are awesome in both daylight and at nighttime.

Fun to walk across and see the view, but tons of people are taking selfies on the bridge so it's tough to spend a lot of time/stop and look unless you're interested in photo bombing as many folks as possible!

Was glad we stopped to see the Brooklyn Bridge. Had a lot of shops on the side that sold cheap souvenirs! Bridge was crowded to walk across but was good to see!

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.
