One of the oldest suspension bridges in the country, it spans almost 486 m (1,600 ft) across the East River, connecting the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Take the subway to Brooklyn and walk back along the bridge toward Manhattan for the best views of the city, but not before wandering through the Brooklyn Bridge Park. If you’re hungry, stop for a famous slice of Brooklyn pizza before heading back over the bridge.

  • We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge during sunset towards Manhattan. Seeing the bright orange colours as it transition to the dark evening sky with lights of the buildings in Manhattan was magical. Y...  more »
  • Well worth the walk! Great views of Manhattan, Fun atmosphere filled with pedestrians, cyclists, families, hipsters, tourist and locals alike. 
  • Anbefaler på det varmeste en spasertur over Brooklyn Bridge. Fantastisk Skyline. Eneste negative er at det er mye folk her.

  • The views were amazing and the views of the city from Brooklyn are worth the walk. A little busy with all the tourists. We were thinking of riding bikes but glad we didn't as the walkway isn't that wide. They have banned locks too. Lots of messages to read along the bridge too.
  • I have walked over both during the day and night. Night time is much better as there are less people and the view is better. You will find street vendors selling all kinds of things during the day. It's free plus you're getting some much needed exercise and great views of Manhattan.
  • 1. One of the best view you will ever experience. 2. If you gonna walk the whole bridge, be prepare to be tired at the end. 3. You may use bathroom before you step into the bridge. 4. You may wanna be careful not to drink too many water while you are walking as there are no restroom on the bridge.
  • Beautiful bridge and I loved that the Manhattan bridge runs parallel so you get to see both bridges. There are several options to see this bridge. You could go to the Brooklyn Park and watch the bridge while taking pictures with it from far away. You will also get manhattan bridge and the ocean with carousel view from the park. The other option is walking through the bridge. Which I have no idea how to get because I thought I was going to walk through it by getting to the park but I couldn't find a way.
  • Since becoming somewhat of an attraction and wanting to visit Brooklyn anyway we decided to take a walk across it and as most people say you do get some incredible views of New York. Even from below when you get to the other side just staring up at it you have to marvel at our species advancements to create something so vast to carry as many people as it does that has lasted for so long. We went across pretty much at midday and it wasn't overly crowded, the weather was beautiful so you'd expect more tourists out. It was a nice pleasant walk and I even helped a French family take a picture of them all. Instead of attaching a lock like so many others i asked for my girlfriends hand in marriage! She said yes so 5 stars it is!
