Opened in 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge provides passage between Brooklyn and Manhattan for motorists, trains, bicycles and pedestrians. One of the primary symbols of New York City, it is a marvel of design and provides spectacular views of the city's...more
I highly recommend walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, especially starting on the Brooklyn side walking towards Manhattan. Absolutely breathtaking views! Well worth the walk and one of my favourite things about NYC.
We took the MTA subway to near the Brooklyn pedestrian entrance. We walked across to Manhattan always mindful of the bicycle traffic. The bridge is wonderful to look at, and it has great views of Manhattan. What a nice introduction to New York!
First walk across Brooklyn Bridge in the wind and rain. Even so it was very busy. However, this did not stop us enjoying the experience and we had a drink and snack in Front Street Pizza in Brooklyn. Unfortunately due to the weather we did...More
I have walked this bridge 3 times now: one summer at sunset when I was 4mos pregnant, one fall afternoon with a sleeping toddler, and another summer sunset with the toddler walking the whole length with us!
It seems to be always crowded when we...More
Did my daily run to Brooklyn and back and it was refreshing with lovely views. There are lots of pedestrians walking and I ran to the right on the bike path, bike riders were courteous and I had little trouble navigating through all the people....More
Read these reviews and thought it couldn't be too bad but it was! Very busy and very noisy with the traffic. Weather bit cloudy but the bridge was worth the effort. Shame people had no thought for people trying to negotiate passing them posing for...More
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
Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.

We did the same thing! We were stopping in Times Square too! Clarke Street was the subway stop we went to in Brooklyn - the bridge is signposted from the station. I think it took about 1.5 hours to walk back across.
Actually we visited 911 first - then went across to Brooklyn! It’s a nice walk from the bridge down to 911 museum - take in City Hall, Woolworth building, Wall Street and Oculus on the way.
