Brooklyn bridge is a must! I took a boat that went underneath it and then dropped me off at Brooklyn.

Brooklyn bridge is on the hudson river and connection between manhattan and brooklyn region, it was built on late 1800s.. You can easily walk through the bridge, almost 500m. (also by car). With its beautiful landscape, you can take many panoramic photos. You should visit brooklyn bridge, it is the symbol of NYC !!

Great walk across this bridge, keep an eye out for bikes though and don't start into the bike lane whilst walking. We got off the red bus at the World Trade Center stop and simply walked

This is one of those bridges in the world that must be seen and must be crossed (to my mind). Amazing structure and design It's not the golden gate, nor the sydney harbour...but it's pretty spectacular. Amazing photography location.

Very crowded. Nice views, worth the hike. Stay in the pedestrian lane if you don't want to get run over by cyclists 😏. Enough places to rest on the bridge. Take the ferry on the other side back to Manhattan.

If you are going to NY, You have to visit Brooklyn bridge. Amazing landmark and a great place to take pictures especially for couples. We visited the bridge March 2017 on a weekday afternoon. It was still cold and not that crowded and we were able take some great photos. Great view overlooking the New York city.
