It's totally worth the walk from Brooklyn to Manhattan, you get a beautiful view of Manhattan Skyline, the walk is not as long as some would say, maybe 1 hour walk. it's kind of a tight walk at some points, but nothing too risky just watch out for the bikes.

Whenever I go to New York, I always go to Brooklyn Bridge Park for my photography. I would love to sit and see the sunset. Walk along the river and do my favourite activities such as looking for something new, taking photograph, cycling around the city and etc. This is a must see spot for those who want to know... More

See the sunset over Manhatten. Total bucket list moment and it's free. Unforgettable experience. Can't visit New York and not do this.

I am told the bridge is about a mile walk. It can be confusing to get to the entrance and some nice lady helped us when our gps failed us. The weather was absolutely beautiful for a February day. The skyline is amazing and watching the boats pass is fun. Seating along the way to stop, sit and rest. Nice... More

The walk is lovely, crowded, but what do you expect? Seeing the different skylines as you walk across is really cool. And we went on a bright sunny day, so it was particularly beautiful in my opinion.

We did the bridge walk on a very cold day but it was still worth the walk. The bridge's architecture is very cool and the views are top notch. You can see so many things from different parts of the bridge and all are picture worthy. There are plenty of others walking the bridge so don't worry about finding someone... More

We finished off a long walk around the city with a stroll across the bridge and back. One side of the path is for walkers and the other for bikes, who do add a bit of danger with the speeds they whistle by at. The walk is rewarded with fantastic views of the Manhattan skyline and as everyone there is... More

Want too excited at first but that changed moments later. The walk is long but short if you're having fun. Lots of people, great views of the city, was a good experience. Upon completion there's a simple place on the bridge where you can sign your name , leave a message, anything! Go make your mark on the Brooklyn Bridge

It speaks for itself. The Brooklyn Bridge is a must see/do when heading to New York City. Easily accessible and you have a choice of car, bike or simply walking over it. A great photo spot at all times of the year. .. and Free entry :)

I walked across the bridge to Manhattan from Brooklyn. It's a great activity for anyone visiting the city looking for exercise and good views.
