Brooklyn Bridge Park Reviews
My husband was born and raised in NYC and never walked this bridge. It was fun to do something different (we come to NYC a lot for family). I cannot believe it took us so many trips to take this..... more »
pick a beautiful day and walk the bridge! you will not be disappointed.. the views of NY are amazing ! more »
Best place for a sunrise and sunset picture of new york. You can see the statue of liberty, the entire skyline if the clouds clear, and the Brooklyn Bridge. The entire park is made for the viewing with lots of great corners where you can get good panorama. The bridge is kind of confusing to cross to get here so look up directions carefully
Always happy to visit this place, especially at night. You get to see the spectacular view of Manhattan. There are couple of chairs where we can sit and relax and enjoy the breeze over the river. Be careful of bicycle riders. They move very fast. Apart from that you can take a relaxing walk and enjoy the view.
