"Brooklyn Bridge" Brooklyn Bridge Tip by darthmilmo

Brooklyn Bridge, New York City: 189 reviews and 335 photos

 
 

One of my favorite bridges in the world, the Brooklyn Bridge has been a standing icon of NYC for over hundred years. For those lazy tourists, there are excellent views from South Street Seaport Mall. However, for the adventurer like me, go ahead and walk across this gigantic bridge and enjoy the lights of the Financial District in Manhattan from afar. Best time to see it is at night. Honestly, it's not that dangerous. Locals say you should go in groups though so keep your eyes open. I rather head to the subway exit in Brooklyn and walk back to Manhattan, but that's just me.

Address: Spanning the East River.
Directions: Between Manhattan & Brooklyn
