Grab a Starbucks coffee before walking over the bridge and enjoy the view. It’s gorgeous and you can see the Statue of Liberty.

Awesome view of the bridge when you walk over it. Lovely. Walk gets long though for older people like my mother. But worth it. Rest and benches present. Look out for the cyclists and walk in the designated lanes.

Take the subway over to Brooklyn and then walk back over the Bridge to Manhattan. This way you get the views of the city in front of you and if you do it in the morning the sun will be behind you.

You gotta try this in NYC. We did it in under an hour. It is popular but crowds aren’t an issue-just watch out for bikes. Get out for the exercise!!

Loved the views of Manhattan though theirs a lot of people obviously. I would recommend walking to Brooklyn Heights Promenade and take pictures there!

The Brooklyn Bridge is truly a marvel. Vehicles running in both ways on this stacked bridge. One direction top one direction below. Lots to see from the bridge as you traverse from Manhattan to Brooklyn and back again.

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