View from Brooklyn Bridge obscured?

Hi - 2 weeks until we arrive in NYC!!! One of the things we want to do is to take the walk back across Brooklyn Bridge to see the view of Manhattan. However, a friend who visited in April said that the view was obscured due to some boarding/scaffolding or some such on the bridge. Is this correct and is it still there?

Thanks in advance.

There has been construction going on lately, but never covering up the whole bridge. The last time I walked over a few months ago there were still awesome views from the center and east sides of the bridge, and the west side had a section of tarp. Still totally worth it!

Just walked the bridge last week. The only thing obscuring views would be the crowds (you can work with that --- London is just as crowded). There is work going on, but not blocking views. If you're able, get there early in morning, or late.

The construction is complete. I agree the only thing blocking the view will be the crowd.
