About Brooklyn Bridge, New York City

The bridge is one of the most famous and magnificent landmarks in New York. It connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. This is one of the greatest engineering feats of the 19th century.

The impressive bridge spans the east river between Brooklyn and Manhattan and stretches for a length of 5989 ft, about 1.8 km. The span between the large towers measures 1595.5 ft (486 meters). This made the Brooklyn Bridge one of the world's largest suspension bridges.

The two masonry towers, which the many cables are attached, are the most noticeable feature of the Bridge. It also offers a great view of the bridge's towers.

  • How could you NOT cross this bridge if you're in NYC? Whether you live here or not it's a must-do. Fantastic views of the harbor, downtown financial district, WTC, and downtown Brooklyn. It's a great walk. On a bike it's a little more challenging, because the bike/walkway is pretty narrow. Plus, everyone stops to take pictures . . . understandable. If you're from out of town, combine it with a visit to the new Fulton St Market area and even a helicopter tour or East River ferry ride - both a few blocks from bridge access. Would make a nice day's outing and beats the heck out of hanging around in Times Square.

  • This is a great place for both New Yorkers and Tourists alike. It has one of the best views in the city and its extremely iconic. Come here to take a nice stroll with your family or your date, watch as the sun sets all while listening to the cars beneath your feet. It is very family friendly and just a nice place to have a good time while over the river.

  • The bridge itself is magnificent! Make sure to stop and read the plaques near each tower describing the construction. The views from the bridge are one of a kind. The only downside is the walkway isn't big enough, especially with a bunch of bikes flying down one side. Altogether walking the bridge is a must do!

  • This is a great place to take a stroll! I was staying in Manhattan, and took the subway in Brooklyn, got off on the first stop and did a little exploring. I walked back to Manhattan on the bridge and it was amazing. Even in the New York heat, it was worth it. There were people from all walks of life there, tourist and locals. There are people selling water, exercising, strolling, taking photos. It's definitely a walk, but it is well worth it for the views and just to enjoy to iconic historic bridge. You can rent a bike and bike across as well if you are just too tired from all the walking you have done. There are designated bike lanes and pedestrian lanes, be mindful of where you are walking as someone can be zooming on by on a bike. I recommend walking the entire thing to truly enjoy all the views and the city. It's a great place to go alone and relax, I'm sure it's much more beautiful during other times of the year and day. I went during the hottest part of the day and I still really enjoyed it. Make sure to take time out of your trip or day to just relax and take a stroll, enjoy the scenery.

  • A great engineering structure which has been maintained well. Offers great views of the Manhattan skyline. We crossed the bridge on foot on the upper deck walkway. Good for biking also though rather congested except in early morning.
