It is a must do when in NYC and a cool bridge - having said that it is rammed with tourists and all the garbage bins are overflowing making the bridge very messy

Finally got to walk over this icon after many visits to NYC and wasn't disappointed. The entrance to the bridge is not by the water it is a few blocks back so plan before you go where you need to get on it if on foot as this will save you time.

We visited the Brooklyn Bridge on 27th December.

It was very busy throughout - we went at sunset, which was probably the busiest time anyway. At the beginning, the path was full of vendors selling merchandise, so it seemed almost like a "tourist trap".

There are however spectacular views, of all of Brooklyn/Manhattan on either side - it was absolutely worth the hype. The walk overall is 30 min, and over wooden planks, so if you're scared of heights this might not be for you.

Will definitely be coming back if I'm ever in the area.

When we were walking on the bridge, one of my friends read an article, which said that if you just walk from one end to another it will take 40 minutes, but usually people cross the bridge for almost 2 hours. In the end we realized that the article was right. There are so many pretty views that you want to stop every 2 meters to take a picture.

We walked about halfway across on a December evening. It provides a very pretty view of the city and bridge. We didn’t go all the way across, and I’m not sure there is a need to.

The bridge is only just over a mile long, so the walk across is not very challenging but a great way to view both Manhattan and Brooklyn. With stops to take photos along the way the crossing can take longer, but you could do it in 20 minutes if you just walked without stopping. Once you've crossed over you can explore the Dumbo area with Jane's Carousel, and Brooklyn Bridge Park. An amazing, free experience, with fantastic views!

Was so strange walking across the bridge and back - i just in awe of it - great photo opportunities and looked beautiful lit up at night time. and the view of the bridge from a cruise is just as good
