Brooklyn bridge walk from Brooklyn to Manhattan. Easy to catch subway across to brooklyn and walk back into Manhattan over the pedestrian / cycling way which is raised above the road over the bridge. Stunning views over Manhattan and Hudson east river.

Best to visit at sunset to see lights reflecting of skyscrapers. Buildings in the background are historical gems.

Beautiful bridge, everyone loves it from tourist to locals. They offer biking sides on the bridge too so many people are able to bike and exercise through the bridge. The walk is not too long as well.

Sorry we took the hop on and off bus. I am sure there would be street parking somewhere near.

Yes there are many benches along the bridge. But people do use them to stand on for elevated photo op's so don't wear light coloured pants!
