The Brooklyn Bridge opened in 1883 as the longest suspension bridge in the world at the time. It is a National Historic Landmark as well as a New York City Landmark. With over 127 years of heavy use, the bridge is undergoing a major rehabilitation.
Both the architect and his son died in the process of building the bridge. The son's wife took over and finished the project.
Pass the bridge at sunset. The landscape is wonderful.
You try to get bicycle in order you can cross it quickly and enjoy it better.
Loved the walk and the views of the city right before sunset!
Beautiful bridge with an industrial look. Must-do walk !
Gorgeous view and a beautiful walk!
Classic destination. It has to be done.
Great views. Cyclists to be avoided. Boy, it would be great if you could still take a trolley across.
date spot! good view of Manhattan and romantic walk for sure.
Come here for sunrise - no people and great picture opportunities.
Walk though the bridge and enjoy the view
Fun! It only takes about 15 mins to walk the whole thing.
#mustdo if you're a tourist!It's not a long walk, but the view is amazing(especially in the evening). I'd suggest walking from Manhattan to Brooklyn!But the bridge may be overcrowded with people,bikes
Great walk across the bridge
Spectacular views. Doesn't need to add more.
Beautiful sights, nice walk/run
This photo taken just before arriving ot Brooklyn bridge
Perfect spot to enjoy an ice cream and the view
Walk from the Brooklyn side for beautiful views of Manhattan
Amazing views. Iconic.
If you're biking, go use the Manhattan bridge
Great views of the Manhattan and Brooklyn skylines and the Statue of Liberty.:-)
Do the crossing from brooklyn to manhattan! Great view!!
Great views, but stay out of the bike lane if you are walking.
The most functional historical landmark
You need to cross it by foot. The best views are from Brooklyn to Manhattan bound
if you get a chance, walk over this bridge, it is an amazing, historic walk and some of the views are incredible
A very cool bridge just stay on the walking lane otherwise you might get hit by a bike.
Great for people watching and to really feel the whole city buzz. Watch out for people on bikes when u walk, it can get pretty crowded.
Sunsets here are breathtaking
Iconic bridge with iconic views of Manhattan
Walk the Brooklyn bridge, doesn't take too long. Watch out for bikes!
Welcomed the New year 2016 here. It was amazing.
Walking? Stay in the pedestrian lane! Bikes? Stay in the bicycle lane!
You can walk from Manhattan to Brooklyn ans take amazing photos all the way. There is a lane for bikers!
Beautiful place, beautiful view😍
The most iconic bridge in New York.
Seen in my previous trips to NYC but never been under it along Brooklyn Bridge Park. Awesome. Beautiful. Great views of Downtown and the Financial District
Cross from Brooklyn to Manhattan for great views of the sky line.
Not a bad walk. Make sure to stay on the pedestrian lane and avoid the bike lane!
What a great walk and incredible scenery
Walk across it.
Make sure you spend some time in Dumbo park once you cross out of Manhattan
A trip to NYC is incomplete if you did not walk/cycle across the bridge. You can take lots of cool photos and timelapse videos here. It might get a bit chilly and windy, take a light jacket with you.
Please dont walk across on July or August. Too hot to be a good idea.
