Lovely walk over the bridge. Amazing views both ways. Very busy but not too much trouble. Just have to keep moving. Definitely watch out for the cyclists who do go very fast and don't like being stepped out in front of. Fair enough!

Walking across the Brooklyn Bridge is great. Amazing views of the New York skyline and if you go early enough you can watch the sunrise.

It is completely safe. Still crowded but not as bad as on a nice day. Anywhere there are that many tourists is going to be very safe
Is it safe to walk from the bridge all the way to Barclays Center?
