Brooklyn Bridge, New York City

4.8
Walk across one of New York’s most iconic landmarks, Brooklyn Bridge, while admiring breathtaking views of the city skyline. One of the oldest suspension bridges in the country, it spans almost 486 m (1,600 ft) across the East River, connecting the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Take the subway to Brooklyn and walk back along the bridge toward Manhattan for the best views of the city, but not before wandering through the Brooklyn Bridge Park. If you’re hungry, stop for a famous slice of Brooklyn pizza before heading back over the bridge.

  • What a great experience. It was an experience to be able to walk through. Love everything about this. It is an amazing piece of art. The details on the bridge are amazing. The views are great and should make you feel that you are above everything.
  • Did the Free Tours by Foot with Jon yesterday that included Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Heights & DUMBO. What a great tour we had. Jon is informative, funny and really made the history of the bridge and area come alive. Great views from what is a truly spectacular bridge on a particularly beautiful day. The walk around Brooklyn Heights was also lovely. Well done, Jon.
