    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.

    In the summertime, finish your walk with some Luke's lobster rolls.

    If you want to go for a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge, take either the 4, 5, 6, J or Z train to City Hall.

    Raised my whole life in Brooklyn and I still enjoy this bridge. I feel so lucky to be able to walk over this bridge whenever I want. This is a must if you come to the city

    beautiful view no matter where you are standing though it is annoying with all of the street peddlers you encounter on the Manhattan side

    Come by night, walk 7 minutes and turn around to see the skyline.

    Marcello Marchese · October 30
  • Emiliano S.

    One of the grestest places in the world. You have to walk it all.

  • prima f.

    Iconic, but also very annoying and stressful to visit thanks to the tourists blocking the way and to the rude runners pushing you to the bike lane.

  • Clayton M.

    Pay attention to the walking and biking lanes. Bikers will hit you. Don't stop to take bad pictures of the city either. Pay $40 for a 2 hour boat cruise with much better views

    Clayton McLaughlin · October 25
  • Victoria Z.

    Be careful: crowds of visitors plus many bicycles. But sights are worth it

    Victoria Zelenskaya · October 25
  • Raw

    For a better view, you've got to walk from the Brooklyn side towards Manhattan. 😃 (and respect the walking/bike lanes...)

    Raw · October 24
  • Adam S.

    Seriously one of the best touristy things to do in the city! The views and the history are both incredible

    Adam Schuit · October 24
  • Jastine K.

    Magnificent view of FiDi. Not an ideal place to run though especially during peak hours. Wish the walk lane was a bit wider.

    Jastine Kho · October 23
  • Santi C.

    Great view from here! Feel like in the movies and take awesome pictures!

    Santi Caamaño · October 22
  • Sunny C.

    Go early in the morning or late at night. Living here for 20 years, it's filled with tourists now, so go at those 2 time slots to avoid them

    Sunny Chen · October 22
  • Kyler R.

    so packed with people on nice days that you can barely move, but at night and in less popular times its amazing

    Kyler Ross · October 21
  • Caroline

  • Caroline D.

    Come at sunrise for scenic views of the Manhattan skyline. The building windows will reflect as gold. Otherwise, there will be lots of pedestrians/tourists and bikers taking photos.

    Caroline Deng · September 6

  • Alex H.

    A marvel of engineering and architecture. Worth walking over, in spite of the crowds, for a special view of lower Manhattan. On the Brooklyn side, stop by Brooklyn Ice Cream factory to reward yourself

    Alex Hennessey · August 25
  • Ailie C.

    Walk towards Manhattan during sunset. Don't be intimidated, it doesn't take that long to get all the way across. Watch out for bikers they will run you over without remorse!
