    Beautiful views, busy during sunset
    Lovely views of the city especially when visiting during sunset hours. Can get quite busy around this time so you have to weigh up whether you prefer it to be quieter or prefer the sunset views. We subwayed to dumbo then walked back into the city over the bridge which was a good distance and a lovely way to spend the evening.

    Walk the Brooklyn Bridge
    This is a fun walk if you've never been to New York before. It is kind of long and there isn't a great way to just do it quickly. We ended up walking about a third of it and then walking back. It's right by a subway stop which is nice, so you can easily get there. There's tons of vendors all along the bridge, so don't stop at the first thing you see, keep walking to see what's all there. Lots of people trying to get influencer shots too

    A fun evening walk
    We thoroughly enjoyed walking across the bridge from Brooklyn, viewing the Manhattan skyline. The design of the bridge itself is fascinating and the wooden suspended walkway belies its history. We crossed on a gray day which likely kept the crowds low, but we could see how crossing on a hot, sunny, busy day would be less enjoyable.

    Nice stroll across the bridge
    We had a nice time in this area. The bridge was great to see and experience walking across. The vendors were fun before crossing. The view of the city is nice and the bridge is iconic! Go see this bridge!

    Amazing Experience
    Great time had walking along the bridge. It was such great experience to walk across such an iconic structure. Great for gifts as well as there are lots of people selling inexpensive gifts along the bridge.

    Great views
    I've visited NYC many times before but had never walked on the Brooklyn Bridge. I did on my last visit and really enjoyed it.Definitely worth doing. Caught the subway/C train from Manhattan World Trade Centre station to Brooklyn High Street. We visited the Time Out market in Dumbo and walked back on the Bridge. Great experience, fantastic views from the bridge (Manhattan Bridge on one side, and Manhattan/One World on the other) we timed it right with the sunset !

    A great, free excursion!
    Such an iconic bridge and free to walk across! Great views of lower Manhattan from the bridge. Walk takes around 15-20 minutes. We took the subway to Brooklyn and walked back over to Manhattan.

    Walk Across the Bridge!
    We could see it out our window of our temporary apartment in Brooklyn. It looked great. And the approach was right our of our door so everyday we saw thousands of tourists walking toward the Bridge. It's a great walk with terrific views of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the river, all for free. And now it is one of the major tourist attractions and can be combined with the Brooklyn Bridge Park at the Brooklyn waterfront. At the Manhattan end you are in the City Hall area, which is also fascinating. I just love this experience!

    Sunrise Brooklyn bridge
    Fabulous way to start the morning. Up early to watch sunrise over the city. You’ll see the vendors opening up and less tourist hassle at this time. We walked from Manhattan side across which was easy to navigate. Excellent views across both sides.

    Lovely bridge to cruise under :-)
    This will be a quick review. We only passed under this iconic bridge on an evening cruise around Manhattan. Nevertheless the views were superb and I can now say that I have seen the bridge that features so prominently in so many American movies over the years. Look at the smoggy sky - all thanks to wildfires up in Canada.

So honestly I found this walking of the Brooklyn Bridge over rated because it’s a long walk over 8 lanes of loud automobile traffic, with little shade. The views are good but not great from the walkway. I would just take the subway. If walking again I would bring earplugs or headphones.

Brooklyn Bridge was the world's first steel wire suspension bridge; we took a quick trip from North Slope neighborhood and walked across Brooklyn Bridge to New York. Brooklyn Bridge was a good walk, it takes around a mile or so between the two New York boroughs, Brooklyn and Manhattan. There's a hiker-biker path for public use. Brooklyn Bridge opened in 1883. There are six lanes for vehicles -- no trucks!

A really lovely experience. We walked across both ways one morning in the city and the views are amazing. Seeing a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty was a lovely sight.

Be prepared for the crowds so that will impact any pictures you are trying to take. We took the subway to City High exit - then it was a short walk to the stairs to begin the walk across the bridge - It was a holiday weekend so the crowds were thick - but definitely a feat of engineering you will want to experience.

This is a must see in NYC. On a hot summers day go at night. You won’t be disappointed. It is free and a fun walk. Ideally walk to the other side and then continue on to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. You won’t be sorry for all the great views you’ll have.

This was my 5th time in NYC but my 1st time walking the Brooklyn bridge. It was a cold but a sunny wonderful morning the end of February 2024. The bridge and views are spectacular and you feel like you are a New York local. I could even see the Statue of Liberty in the distance.
Also all the padlocks are cute to look at. We took the subway from The New Yorker hotel in Manhattan which we enjoyed. I vlogged my whole experience on my YouTube channel @vickisworldtravel We spent a wonderful 10 days in the big Apple & I look forward to my next visit.
This is definitely a must when visiting New York.

Opened in 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge was the first fixed crossing of the East River and was the the longest suspension bridge in the world at the time of its opening. The span was originally called the East River Bridge but was officially renamed the Brooklyn Bridge in 1915. Only passenger vehicles and pedestrian and bicycle traffic are permitted.

City Hall Park & the bridge are a must do! The views are amazing. It’s an easy walk, just crowded. Go early if it’s hot. Really great spot!

Walking over the iconic Brooklyn Bridge is something every visitor to NYC should do. The bridge itself seems to exude the confidence of NYC - even in the rain. Walking north - south means you're pretty soon in Dumbo which itself is worth the visit, so if you're travelling to Dumbo, give yourself a treat and walk the bridge/
