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.

Brooklyn Bridge Reviews
It's a lovely walk on the Brooklyn Bridge. There are markings on the floor so you know where to walk and not upset other walkers and cyclists. There are some little stalls on the New York City side... more »
Walking the Brooklyn Bridge should be on everyone's bucket list: its free, its awesome and the views are fantastic. Its a huge bridge so expect to walk over a mile (one way). Allow at least an hour.... more »
Fantastic engineering work. The bridge is beautiful. The view of Manhattan from the bridge is breathtaking. I recommend walking over the bridge. We visited it in the evening and we saw sunset. Wonderful. Very nice to see city in the lights with the combination of sunset. It is always crowded on the bridge, but the experience is wonderful.
What a beautiful bridge!!! It's a pretty long walk but the beauty of the bridge keeps you going. Loved every minute spent walking on this bridge. And the view of the night city is amazing. The vibrant nature of the city is so contagious!!! :)
