Create an itinerary including Brooklyn Bridge
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's one of the iconic locations in New York City, and you can see the fantastic view of the city's skyline. You can enjoy the walk and can cross the bridge and see the beautiful pictures. If you are planning to do that, then I would suggest going early morning when you won't find many people and can enjoy the walk
  • Great Bridge from where you can see a lot. Best to go for this walk in the morning when there are fewer people. The lats are not all fastened down fully and this just adds to the experience and shows the age of the bridge. Obviously the bridge is free and let's you get from one side to the other so it has great views and serves a purpose. Check it out if you have the time.
