Walking across Brooklyn is a must do experience!

I walked both directions but if you can only do one direction, walking from Brooklyn towards Manhattan is the choice for views of the sky line. In either direction you will also catch a glimpse of the Statue of liberty. I visited in June when it was very hot but you can stop by the pillars for a bit of shade along the way. The foot path is a few meters from Brooklyn Bridge City Hall subway station. Allow at least 30 minutes each way.

Be sure to visit Brooklyn Bridge Park when you reach Brooklyn for more amazing views. The park is a short walk from the bridge.

This is a great place to go for an evening stroll after dinner. Parking was easy on neighbouring streets on the Brooklyn side.Our walk from our car to Manhattan and back was 45 minutes. The breeze was refreshing and the view was enchanting. Bring a bobby pin or baseball hat so your kippa doesnt blow off in the wind.

I really enjoyed walking the bridge. Walking being the key word. You can bike the bridge; however I do not feel it’s worth it. The bridge isn’t long enough to ride and you can’t appreciate the Manhattan views.

I strongly suggest walking from the Brooklyn side to Manhattan!

We ate pizza at Germaldi's and then walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. So fun!! There is adequate room to walk and even my best friend who is terrified of heights enjoyed the walk across. I would recommend this activity to everyone!
