We caught the Subway to Brooklyn (HighStreet) and it was a short walk back to the bridge. We walked back across the bridge to Manhattan and it takes about 20 / 25 mins. A fantastic way to see the city.

A must to do and walk across and drop down into Dunno where there are fantastic views back across the river with both bridges either side of you. Very busy and the cyclists get a bit worked up and ride way too fast.

This was a beautiful walk across the whole bridge. The only shade is at the towers so take water and maybe avoid a hot day. The views up and down the river, and of lower Manhattan made this a pleasant day. The walkway is not...More

Abolutely thrilling. From the first distant glipse of the bridge, to visiting at night and seeing it with all its lights and finally walking from one end to the other, I was completely captivated. Definitely the highlight of my trip.

Started at County Hall and walked to Brooklyn. DUMBO was interesting. Good ferry trip from pier 1 to pier 11 Manhattan $2.75. There are machines but you can pay at the bar onboard.

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
