    Beautiful walk
    We walked from Brooklyn to Manhattan and really enjoyed the trek across the Brooklyn Bridge. It was February but still really busy. We had great views of the skyline and the Statue of Liberty along the way. Definitely worth the time.

    Walk across at sunset
    We decided to walk across as sun was setting which in my opinion was the best decision, light enough to see for miles but with the added bonus of lights coming on. It was busy but not too bad so lots of photo opportunities. Also by far the cheapest place for picking up cheap tourist gifts such as magnets key rings etc

    The Brooklyn Way
    From entering the hotel Tori greeted my mother and I with such warmth . From there Yoursé (I apologize for spelling his name wrong) was so attentive and helped my mother and I to our room. He had great information on nearby areas to explore for food as well as wine. Omar was especially helpful and really catered to all my needs and questions. Omar was charming and sincere making both my mother and I feel at home even considered staying longer. Omar really embodied a hospitable spirit. Thank you!! The entire team at 1 Hotel moved as one and it was really beautiful to experience I picked this hotel to bring in my 30th birthday and I will never forget how well I was treated. Will definitely be returning thank you a thousand times over for such graciousness.

    It takes about 20 minutes to walk both ways
    My wife and I walked over the Brooklyn Bridge, which was fantastic. Such an iconic location. It takes about 20 minutes to walk both ways. There are street vendors on both ends selling tourist type items at very reasonable prices. Much cheaper than the stores. If you are in NYC for a short time and on a budget, I would definitely recommend walking over the Brooklyn Bridge.

    The Most Iconic Bridge in the World 🌉
    The Brooklyn Bridge is the object of pure beauty. It was a cloudy, cool late afternoon and was the best time to walk across. The bridge was a nice walk across. It took about 36 minutes to cross with a stop in the middle. I thought it was cool how the ground material on the pedestrian area was wood decking. Between the wood deck and stone work, it transports you back to the late 1800s. I highly recommend visiting this bridge on a late afternoon on a Sunday.

    my favorite Sight in NYC
    For me the most beautiful Sight in New York. Yes it is packed with tourists and little souvenirshops, but the view makes up for it! I even walked it twice in one day, one time during the sunny day, one time by night. I couldn´t choose which one i liked best!

    A great walk
    I have at picture of this iconic bridge in my office. Now I have walked across it. We traveled to Brooklyn from Manhattan by subway. Must be the quickest and easiest way to get there. Had a lunch in the sun and did some sightseeing in Brooklyn before walking a cross. Lots of souvernirs can be bought. Live entertainment of varying quality by the bridge towers. I was so excited when I got there, and I am happy that I have walked across the Brooklyn Bridge

    Breathtakingly spectacular!
    We did some research online and figured that the best views of the Brooklyn Bridge had to be from Brooklyn Bridge Park. So we navigated our way on the NYC subway to Brooklyn Bridge station, followed Google Maps and walked about 10 mins (slow leisurely pace) from the station to the park. We chose to hang out at Jane's Carousel - and got some superb photos of the bridge and views of the Manhattan skyline (since it was cloudy that day our pictures are a bit subdued but sunnier weather would have made for better pictures). We decided the views were good enough from the park so we didn't actually walk the bridge from Brooklyn side to Manhattan. Instead we sat in the park and enjoyed some quiet time just relaxing by the water and soaking up the views. Thanks from Toronto, Canada

    Crossing bridge is an interesting exprience
    Brooklyn Bridge is an engineering masterpiece. The bridge has carried thousands of vehicles and pedestrians since it first opened in 1993. It was once the longest suspension bridge in the world. , The Brooklyn Bridge was the first bridge to span the East River, between Manhattan and Brooklyn. The bridge has a hiker biker level. We crossed the bridge on foot several times, it was an interesting experience

    I really wanted to cross into Brooklyn on my recent trip to New York . But keeping my feet dry was a priority for me so I nearly gave up ! Untill I noticed a bridge going from one side of the river to the other . By the time I reached Brooklyn my feet had been dryer then ever so top marks to this bridge for offering a safe dry pathway from one side of the river to the other .

Embarked on a delightful day out with friends to the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, it was an absolute blast! We lucked out with fantastic weather, which set the perfect backdrop for some pictures.

The highlight? Long strolls along the majestic Brooklyn Bridge, taking in breathtaking views of the cityscape and the East River. The atmosphere, coupled with the rhythmic pulse of the city, created a memorable experience.

Brooklyn Bridge is an amazing spot filled with even more amazing people. However, there is one person from our town is missing - 16-year-old Dazaiya Pettus-Felder. I am reaching out to you with hope that you can help find her. If you see her around Brooklyn Bridge or have any information, please visit the Amigos for Kids website to share it. Let's work together to bring Dazaiya home. She is waiting to be found and I truly believe that with your help, she will be.

Great adventure!!!
It’s a must, we did the walk Dumbo Brooklyn to Manhattan and it could not be better, do it!!
We did morning walk so it was not hot or sunny.
It’s wheelchair friendly not a 100 percent, but can be done.

We wandered by the river at night and sat on the swings at Pier 35 to get some great views of the bridge all lit up. There were building works going on near the bridge but you could still get down by the river to see it clearly.

It’s worth visiting because it’s a famous bridge that features in loads of films. However it is just a bridge that is overcrowded unless you go early on. The views are beautiful and like I said if you’re in NYC on vacation then definitely visit but be prepared to get up early for the best pictures or you’ll be crammed walking down the bridge or trying to get a decent photo

the bridge embodies a blend of tradition and modernity. Its surroundings boast historic landmarks like the Tower of London and Borough Market, offering a rich cultural experience for history buffs and food enthusiasts alike. The area's vibrancy, coupled with the constant stream of commuters and tourists, adds an undeniable energy to the atmosphere.

The Brooklyn Bridge is like a giant masterpiece connecting two worlds. Walking on it feels like stepping into a time machine with amazing views of the city. It's not just a bridge; it's a story, a postcard, and a piece of New York magic. Totally worth the stroll!

What a great American Icon. Sadly ruined by huge crowds and street vendors selling Chinese made junk. This experience would be better if it was chargeable and managed.
