Busy place, iconic national treasure with a fantastic history, but still great at what it was designed for, that being connecting Brooklyn to Manhattan. Views walking from Brooklyn into Manhattan over the elevated walkway are stunning. Also good place for spotting NYPD officers eating their donuts whilst sitting in their golf buggies, that is if they are not sleeping!

So much fun walking across the Bk Bridge. U will learn all about the construction of the bridge. The weight of each metal used to make the bridge. Who helped to build and design bridge. When your is over u enter Bklyn Heights. Here u will learn about the Underground Railroad. It's an amazing educational tour and FUN!

The views are spectacular from the Brooklyn Bridge. I would recommend if a clear day to walk over the bridge into NYC or Brooklyn and explore the surrounding areas. Please bring your camera as you will want to take pictures. It may entice you to visit the Seaport and take a boat ride

Ready for a very cool walk in Brooklyn? Take the subway to Borough Hall and head to the water. This park, which has been constructed with sustainabie principles in mind, has spectacular views, diverse amenities (recreational fields, food stops, art, beach, ferries, etc.), a mix of visitors, and some of the most expensive new housing in Brooklyn! This "destination park"... More

Walking across the Brooklyn bridge is a must for anyone visiting NYC. I recommend taking the train into Brooklyn and walk towards Manhattan. If you are walking it in the summer, take shade, like an umbrella, with you. You get great views and can take awesome pics. Be careful to walk on pedestrian side and watch out for bikers

For really great views of the city and Brooklyn, you have to take the walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. It was extremely crowded on the November Saturday evening when we went there, and the bikers were obviously annoyed as the walkers spilled onto their side of the path. There are great photo ops of the bridge and it is very... More

I crossed the bridge during sunset time:how to say...amazing! I loved it. The best idea is to walk through Manhattan bridge and make pictures of the Brooklyn bridge. Then you can always walk back to Manhattan through Brooklyn bridge :)

Any tourist visiting New York must take a walk over this famous landmark. It can be crowded but that's the fun. There is a bike path as well but walking is better as foot traffic will get in your way on a bike. If you walk to Brooklyn then take a walk over to Brooklyn Bridge park for lunch or... More
