Newest Review: ... and the man in charge went over it on an elephant to prove it was safe. A real interesting bit during the building of the bridge was the bits that happened underwater. To make sure the bits holding the bridge up were secure, the workers built big boxes, flooded them over the area they needed to work on and once at the floor, pumped air into them to get the water out. This then created a ... more

I would have thought there would be loads of reviews written on one of the major tourist attractions of New York City. Imagine my shock to see that the last one was written in 2003!!!! I don't like putting history into my reviews, but I feel it is necessary for this icon. Now, I don't know the exact years and if your interested in that, I am sure it is easy to find out. I can tell you that the bridge was built during the late 1800's. The first 'boss' in charge of the project died and his son ended up taking over and completing the bridge. When it was finished, New Yorkers were sceptical that it would hold any weight and the man in charge went over it on ... Read the complete review

Walking the Brooklyn Bridge is one of the best FREE things you can do on this small planet. If you go on a nice day you will feel enriched by the experience. I went on a crisp clear winters day, and when I close my eyes I can still see the criss cross steel supporting wires and I can also see the absoulutely breathtaking views of Manhattan. I am greatly in favour of anything that will get you outside Manhattan. This is beacuse you have to get outside to give the feel for New York. You realise just how magnificent the city looks. It puts our Britsih skylines to shame. The benefit of the Brooklyn bridge is that you will also get a chance to view Manhattan ... Read the complete review

After spending MANY weekends in New York City - my friends alerted me to the fact that I'd never walked the Brooklyn Bridge. I must admit I'd never really thought about it but wow - what a treat! If you're looking for a new perspective on New York then take some time out to walk the bridge..do beware of the cyclists, they do have their own section on the sidewalk over the bridge but tend to have the same mentality as New York drivers..I'll beep you to get out of the way but if you don't I'll run you over! If the structure of the bridge wasn't beautiful enough, take a look behind you at the stunning Manhattan skyline - ... Read the complete review

Linking Manhattan with Brooklyn this bridge is really worth a visit as it's pretty much a tourist attraction in itself, being one of the more famous NYC landmarks. It's a functional bridge so obviously it's free and easy to find! Part of a visit to NY is trying to get the best views of the skyline and this is a great spot! There's a pedestrian section built overhead the cars section and it's worth walking all the way to the Brooklyn side to bag one hell of a spectacular view of Manhattan. It's near lower Manhattan so you'll be able to see the Statue of Liberty in the distance and a great view of the World Trade Center and other ... Read the complete review

Short and Snappy? Well, snappy for sure. As for short, well as anyone who has watched this movie will remember, it's the fact that the monster is very far from short which makes its' encounter with the Brooklyn Bridge so utterly memorable! Having watched the movie "Godzilla" is a pretty good reason to want to see the Brooklyn Bridge. The bridge is somewhat of a star. It appears rather belatedly, but is a star nonetheless...it's all that stands between the island of Manhattan where the beast has been rampaging and the mainland of the united States of America, God bless her! All that provides protection to the unsuspecting residents elsewhere ... Read the complete review
