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.

  • It is quite a sight and great to walk over. Construction is really a great visual experience. Make sure it's on your agenda.

  • Best way to get a great view of this bridge is by taking a water craft tour which goes under the bridge.

  • This very long Bridge is such a special extra for your trip in New York. Just walking over it, seeing a lot of people who are taking pictures and stuff. It is really fun just to sit in the sun and see the view from this bridge, the bridge is having a lot of great view spots, so you can see the one world trade center. It is just a great thing, just walking to Brooklyn get some Shake Shack and walk back!
  • This is a beautiful bridge, it is extremely packed on the weekend and the people make it sometimes tough to enjoy. It's amazing they made a bike lane not on the pedestrian part though, so that frees up a lot of space to actually enjoy it. If you're here on a weekday, then definitely go then to avoid the weekend crowds. Walking across to see Brooklyn is a perfect way to spend a day and look at Manhattan.
