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.

Walking over the Brooklyn bridge was a unique experience. The view was great. I wish we'd had more time to explore Brooklyn

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!

Wow. There are no words to describe the incredible views off this bridge. Sunset added an extra bonus.

Crisp, extreamly cold, sunny morning walk across Brooklyn Bridge. Spectacular views as you walk across the bridge, take your time and enjoy every minute.

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.
