Suggest taking the subway to the opposite side you live on, then walk back. DUMBO area is very nice on the Brooklyn side. It takes about 30 minutes to get across. See how people from all over the world get in each other's way, or...More

The Brooklyn Bridge is a marvel, just as the Tower Bridge in London, it's 'old'. This bridge was build in 1869, with craftsmen creating a unique bridge. A steel wired construction. When you visit, please read a short history of the bridge first. Only then...More

Despite the intense heat we were prepared with comfy shoes and water. Great photo opportunities and the best pizza in Brooklyn at Juliana’s - only a ten minute walk from end of bridge. If I did it again I’d head out much earlier.

Loved the buzz and fabulous views from the bridge. But be aware that at times the walkway is very narrow, so people walk in the cycle lane. This frustrates the mad cyclists and they fly past and shout abuse at the pedestrians.

We cannot recommend the Brooklyn Bridge highly enough. Surely nobody could visit NYC and not at least see the bridge, but it is worth taking time to view the bridge (and the Manhattan skyline) from the Brooklyn side and walk across it (from Brooklyn to...More

So, this was on our list as a must see, but in all honesty, it was sooo crowded, I am not sure I would bother. We got great photos from South St Seaport too. But, walking on the bridge was horrible with so many people!

Loved walking across the bridge! views were beautiful and it felt surreal to be standing looking at the statue of liberty from where I was. Walking is through the middle of the bridge so I felt very safe!!!!!

Definitely a must try for anyone, especially New Yorkers, the views are incredible. Just be careful of the bicycles and the respective lanes.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis

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.

We just walked from Battery Park to the bridge. Our whole trip I used google maps to help us find the quickest walking route.
