You've walked over Brooklyn Bridge and around Dumbo and figure that a walk back on this iconic bridge would make a nice return. But... - It's very noisy with subway trains rattling past very close to your ears on this metal structure. - Photos looking...More

We did this on our first full day there and although it was a misty damp day it was still very enjoyable. Helps clear the head from the flight. We did it without a tour guide and unless you are a bridge nut I think...More

If you have time better to go to this bridge by foot over East river. It connect lower Manhattan to Brooklyn. Quite crowded, toll-free. Other option to take snaps from Brooklyn Bridge.

Walked over to Brooklyn on Manhatten Bridge. Nice walk but the total experience was not all that. But nice to do one way and choose the other the other direction - either way, Difficult to get really good views.

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
