Brooklyn Bridge

Brooklyn Bridge

Map
, New York, NY 11201

A stroll along this span is an only-in-New York experience that provides an up-close sense of the city's true grandeur. It's hardly the world-record-setting suspension bridge it was when finished in 1883, but it has retained an iconic status. For the best snapshot-ready, skyscraper-crammed views, hop the subway one stop into Brooklyn (A/C to High Street or F to York Street), then double back across the bridge's pedestrian (and bicycle) path toward Manhattan. Leave an hour for the stroll, including pauses for picture taking and the requisite oohs and aahs.
