Brooklyn Bridge, New York City

4.8
Walk across one of New York’s most iconic landmarks, Brooklyn Bridge, while admiring breathtaking views of the city skyline. One of the oldest suspension bridges in the country, it spans almost 486 m (1,600 ft) across the East River, connecting the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Take the subway to Brooklyn and walk back along the bridge toward Manhattan for the best views of the city, but not before wandering through the Brooklyn Bridge Park. If you’re hungry, stop for a famous slice of Brooklyn pizza before heading back over the bridge.

  • A place obliged to know and get increpibles photographs, either at night or by day. If you go in winter try to wear your coat as the bridge is very windy.

  • The best view of the lower Manhattan. Spectacular. It's next to Dumbo. And close to the Manhattan bridge

  • Beautiful architecture! Vibrant! Lively! I have noticed that round bridge this area has great vibe and it’s full of life! I have really enjoyed my walk! People walking, jogging, cycling, meet up and chat. Great cityscape 🏙 to look at too. I had a chance to walk on which is very nice, although you have to be mindful of others as it is busy! And my friends took me for a drive in the bridge too, so I have experienced the bridge from different perspective. Nice place 👍🏻
  • We went in the morning at around 9AM and the temperature was already -5°C. It's amazing but was very windy and we were almost frozen because of the wind. The view's spectacular! The walk is pretty good, long and amazing. Overall an amazing experience. We'll definitely return here back in the summers.
