Owner description: Opened in 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge provides passage between Brooklyn and Manhattan for motorists, trains, bicycles and pedestrians. One of the primary symbols of New York City, it is a marvel of design and provides spectacular views of the city's skyline.

We walked across the bridge last night after going to the hockey at the Barclays centre. The bridge was quiet very few people but the views were amazing. I would definitely recommend getting off in Brooklyn and walking across to Manhattan for the views as the city was a wonderful sight all lit up.

Walked it in about half an hour. It’s just one of those things to check off your list. You get to see the city from a totally different view. The engineering and architecture of the bridge is spectacular.

You’ll be glad you did it!

What a beautiful view. It was a nice walk over the bridge. Our only issue was that it was really windy but that was expected.

Took a walk over bridge to get to Brooklyn rather than the subway. Was well worth it but don't expect to see all Manhattan skyline as only those nearest the waterfront are clearly visible but no less impressive. Cyclists do travel at high speeds over it and have little regard for tourists or kids so be alert. Subway to City Hall and walk over to the quieter side of the river. You'll not regret it.

The bridge does not disappoint but there were crowds of people and you had to be careful and avoid being hit by a bike.
