The bridge is talked about. Everyone says that this is an iconic bridge. We think not. It is just a bridge.

I think that walking across the Brooklyn bridge is a must! The constructions is impressive, the views are awe-inspiring, and it's not such a long walk.

Nice Walk

Very nice walk, not too long. There were a lot of people, which was not great. Even with younger kids, the walk was do-able.

Love the Bridge
Apr 2021 • Couples
If you are in NYC you must walk across the bridge. They are doing construction on the Manhattan pier side so you can’t touch the bridge upright on that side but it’s such a beautiful view of the city. Start on the Brooklyn side if you want the best view. Subway gets you right to it.

Love this bridge

From Manhatten to Brooklyn what a bridge. Its intriguing to see how this cable suspension bridge spans the Hudson River with such class and architectural design. Always a must see.

Crowded Again! GO NOW
Apr 2021
The marvels of this engineering marvel NEVER gets old. From one end to the other there is so much to see! Walk it, Drive it, Bike it! You will not be disappointed! The pizza on the Brooklyn side is to die for! The architecture and history (both sides) but on the Manhattan side is tremendous! Enjoy!

Although some have said that it’s just a bridge, I personally think it was pretty cool for pictures during sunsets.It was an iconic bridge to walk on with pedestrian walkway through the middle of the bridge. Although quite crowded, the view of Manhattan and Brooklyn was amazing, great way to view the the Manhattan skyline &East River. Neat Experience!

An iconic bridge to walk on - there is a dedicated pedestrian and cyclist walkway through the middle of the bridge, with great views up and down the East river. I personally love walking this bridge because there is no subway line (unlike the Manhattan bridge) and makes for better scenery and a more peaceful walk.

If you're visiting lower Manhattan, walking, skating or biking across the Brooklyn Bridge is a must. Just do it. You won't regret it.
