New York's most famous bridge crosses the East River from Manhattan to Brooklyn. Taking a walk across this historic suspension bridge is a must-do NYC activity, with fabulous views on every side.

Built in the 1870s and '80s, the Brooklyn Bridge was one of the first suspension bridges to be constructed in the USA. At the time, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. The soaring Gothic towers at either end are particularly dramatic when floodlit at night, their tall elongated arches an iconic New York sight.

Check out the observation points under the support towers, with panoramic illustrations depicting the history of New York's waterfront, then stay on to watch as the city lights of Manhattan and Brooklyn switch on at dusk.

Practical Info

The Brooklyn Bridge carries six lanes of traffic, and can be crossed on foot or on your bike if you’re cycling. The southern lane is for walkers, the northern lane for cyclists. On the Manhattan side, the walkway is accessed from Park Row and Centre Street, opposite City Hall Park. The closest subways are City Hall and Chambers Street stations.
