Visited Dumbo after doing the SOL on the ferry and then grabbed the subway over to Brooklyn walking back over the bridge into Manhattan. Fantastic views and a nice easy walk on a pleasant day.

It is nice to walk along the bridge and take in the view of Manhattan and Brooklyn. I don't really understand the hype around the bridge specifically, compared to bridges like the Golden Gate and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

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.
