Nice walk, especially from Brooklyn towards Manhattan.

Very nice views when crossing from Brooklyn towards Manhattan. Beware of fast track cyclists... Great way to see Manhattan from a different angle.

It is an excellent place to visit. There has a nice place to eat pizza. There is place to see and have a good view of the river or sea. There is a lot of sport activity and a beautiful view of Manhattan.

If you are a person exploring NYC ADVENTURES. This is a freebie worth doing. I live here and am still fascinated at this walk over the bridge from Brooklyn to Manhattan. You can see more from this Bridge than you could ever imagine. Wonderful sightseeing trip for everyone!!!!!! I love NEW YORK.

Amazing walk to do in NYC. My advice would be to get the subway to Brooklyn and then walk across the bridge back into manhattan so that you have the view of manhattan walking. We did it on a beautiful cold winters morning so the views were stunning. I highly recommend.

A great and longish walk just cause you can do it. A bit crowded at times but the views back to Manhattan and down river to the Statue are worth it. Finish off the walk with a ferry ride to Wall St. A fun time for all.

Great walk across between Brooklyn and Manhattan. An American icon that has to be seen to be believed.

If you have time, walking across the bridge is a must for visitors to New York. It has also been featured in so many films and t.v. shows. You can marvel at the structure of the bridge, enjoy the views and snap some great pictures.

It's definitely spot you can't and shouldn't miss when in NYC. Great place to photograph but come early because it's packed with tourists.
