Owner description: Opened in 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge provides passage between Brooklyn and Manhattan for motorists, trains, bicycles and pedestrians. One of the primary symbols of New York City, it is a marvel of design and provides spectacular views of the city's skyline.

We took the trek across in the early morning and got some great pics. The bridge was packed on the way back. I recommend getting there before 9ish if you don’t want a thousand people in each pic.

this bridge has great views of manhattan but it does get really crowded, it has a bike lane and it gets so packed you have to walk the bikes

We were staying in Manhattan and took the subway into Brooklyn then walked across the Brooklyn Bridge back into Manhattan. It was fabulous! The views of the skyline - amazing - and it was just so cool to walk across the bridge. It was pretty crowded though.

DUMBO is a section of Brooklyn that takes in two neighborhoods - one between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, and another that continues east from the Manhattan Bridge to the Brooklyn neighborhood Vinegar Hill.

Now a historic district, DUMBO has emerged as a premier arts area, with galleries, a chocolate factory and other culinary businesses. Jerry Seinfeld once joked on a late-night talk show that the acronym actually stands for "Down Under Manhattan Bridge," but New Yorkers arbitrarily added the "O" because they didn't want to live in a neighborhood called "Dumb."

Beware of inconsiderate cyclists. There are stairs on the Manhattan side, not well signposted. Best to go from Brooklyn side, but we we’re on the way to watch The Islanders Ice hockey in Brooklyn. Lots of stops to get good pictures.
