Walking the Brooklyn Bridge is incredible and one of the best free activities you can do in this city. The views are breathtaking and give you a great vantage point of Manhattan and Brooklyn. I may be a little bias on this one as it’s a special place for me and the hubby being the location of our engagement almost 4 years ago!
With an elevated walkway for pedestrians and bikes it takes around half an hour to cross the bridge on foot, but let’s face it you’re going to want to stop for photos. For the best views visit at dusk to enjoy a beautiful sunset over the city on a clear day or at night to marvel at the sparkling skyline of Manhattan.
Beware of bikes and try to stay clear of the bike lane, they will get angry and possibly run you down! To enjoy a more peaceful experience on the bridge your best bet is to visit early in the morning or late at night…as with most attractions in New York!
