Can't believe I've never done this before! It's a popular place for pedestrians and bicyclists. We walked from Brooklyn into Manhattan, stopped and took some photos, chatted along the way, saw lots of people. Glad I did this!

I adore this part of the city especially on a sunny day. The walk is very nice although during holidays and weekends it tends to be a little crowded

We only walked half bridge. It was a very nice day weather wise and there were a lot of people around. The views from the bridge are amazing and it is an excellent time if you visit Manhattan.

Who would think that a person could walk across this bridge without getting run over? Surprise! There is a separate pedestrian/bicycle route separate from the cars and quite enjoyable. Just be sure to stay in the correct lane, might get run over by a speeding...More

Walking across the bridge is historic as well as picturesque. I'd recommend it particularly on a warm beautiful summer day!

I think it took us about 45 mins to stroll across the bridge - walking slowly with stops to read info/graffiti & admire the view. We took the quick 1-stop ferry hop from Pier 11 on the Manhattan side over to the Brooklyn... More
