Did a lot of walking when I was in New York and I had to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. The views from the other side were lovely

As a first-timer in NY, I loved this walk. Not only is it free, of course, but you get a terrific view of the landmarks from both sides of the river. Trouble is, everyone else has the same idea, so expect crowds….souvenirs are cheaper here than in town, too. Add it to your itinerary; you’ll be glad you did.

Had to walk a mile to get to the entrance of the walkway to walk across the bridge, but it was so worth it!! The fog had set in so all I could see was the bridge. The skyline had been wiped out of sight. It was quite an experience and I was able to mark an item off my Bucket list.

An amazing bridge and so glad we saw it. An amazing construction. It is a beautiful structure and so worth seeing. We got the subway to Brooklyn and saw it from Brooklyn. Very busy when we went

After passing the innumerable street vendors peddling souvenirs, you finally access the walkable passageway in the center lane of the bridge. You can see the cars below you left and right. The walkway is made of planks of wood, easy on your feet. Comfortable shoes are a must. There are few resting benches along the way. It is windy up there and there is no shade.
Lovely views of the surrounding sights, a memorable and historic walk you should not miss.

A friend had suggested we walk the bridge and take the commuter ferry back. Once we exited the bridge, it seemed like a long way to get back to the ferry, but we enjoyed the parks, which were in full bloom.

On a beautiful day, walking or biking across the bridge is a great thing to do. If you don't want so much physical exertion, hop on a citi e-bike which gives you an extra boost to get across the bridge. Then walk around dumbo and sit for a drink/snack on the waterfront. Great, leisurely way to see the city.

It is quite a sight and great to walk over. Construction is really a great visual experience. Make sure it's on your agenda.

Best way to get a great view of this bridge is by taking a water craft tour which goes under the bridge.
