    Beautiful bridge, but better to walk across than run or cycle because of the extreme amount of tourists and selfie takers.

    Too much traffic to be a nice spot, but it feels good to have walked across it. Connecting New York by foot.

    Good view of the city!!! Very crowded. If on foot, be sure to stay off the bike path, which is half of the promenade. Best food selection on the Manhattan side of the bridge, in the adjacent park.

    The Brooklyn Bridge joined Manhattan and Brooklyn for the first time when it opened in 1883. It was the longest suspension bridge in the world until 1903. Read more

    Both the architect and his son died in the process of building the bridge. The son's wife took over and finished the project.
