Not exactly your usual hiking trail, but it feels like a rite of passage for a visitor to NYC. You'll be with many of your closest friends as you cross. Views of Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn abound. Access to the Brooklyn Bridge is 24 hours per day and it is beautiful at any time of day, but sunset is particularly excellent. The best part about walking this bridge is that you can enjoy the views of both Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty all at once. Be prepared for whatever time of day you go, it can get chilly up there on the bridge. Plan ahead and bring a jacket or sweater (in fall, winter or spring) so that you can enjoy your walk. Stay to the right so as not to arouse the ire of bicyclists, and embrace the fact that this is New York City and you're always in somebody's way--it's not personal. The pathway is well-crafted to take you above traffic.
That depends on whether you want to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan into Brooklyn or from Brooklyn to Manhattan.
Both are lovely, but you do have a pretty spectacular skyline view if you choose to walk from Brooklyn to Manhattan.
- You could also walk from the Manhattan side halfway across the bridge and then come back. Either way, you can best get to the bridge via the subway. Take the 4, 5, or 6 trains to Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall Stop or the J or Z trains to Chambers St. Stop.
- The bridge will be right across the street from the subway station. The picture and map below will help you find the pedestrian walkway.
- You could also take the 2 or 3 train to Park Place, the N or R train to City Hall, or the A or C train to Fulton Street (circled in black on the map.)
- The red arrow points to where you will be entering the pedestrian walkway.
