What a wonderful way to spend your time crossing the iconic Brooklyn Bridge. Very crowded on a Sunday afternoon, but well worth the experience and memories.

Yes. You are free to walk across the bridge as you please. It's about 1.3 miles one way. Just be wary of the bike lane, as it can get crowded on foot. Do not walk in the bike lane, that's a huge no-no. Though during the day... More
