Brooklyn Bridge, New York City

4.7
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.

  • We walked the Brooklyn Bridge one sunny morning from Manhattan to Dumbo and we were rewarded with a breathtaking view. The walk takes less than an hour stops for photos included but worth it. We reviewed the evening during the tour of NY by night and illuminated shop even more charm regardless of the surrounding views. If you are coming to New York is a must.

  • Once it has crossed the Brooklyn Bridge, you can enjoy phenomenal views of Manhattan on the banks of the East River. Brooklyn Heights is übergends more than worth a visit.

  • So glad a friend recommended that we walk the bridge. I have been to New York so many times, but haven't done this part until now. And it was worth it. We did not do a guide or anything, just walked it at our own pace, and took in the beautiful view. Go on a nice day, like we did, and you'll see way passed the Statue of Liberty and the beautiful skyline on both sides of the bridge. Worth it!
  • After a fabulous dinner at Juliana's we walked back to Manhattan across Brooklyn Bridge. We were walking at dusk and it was a fantastic experience. I would highly recommend anyonw going to NYC to ensure they do this at night. They views are spectacular. It is a bit narrow in places as the walking path is shared with a cycle path. The cyclists take no prisoners, and zoom across the bridge, so need to keep your eyes open. It is such a memorable experience.
