Brooklyn BridgeFree: All time

Since its opening, the Brooklyn Bridge has become an icon of New York city and was designated a National Historic Landmark and National Historic Civil Engineering. Spanning across the East River, the bridge connect the borough of Brooklyn and Manhattan. The bridge not only carries automobile traffic, it has a separate elevated walkway along the centerline for pedestrian and bicycles. The Brooklyn Bridge is most famous notably for its granite masonry towers. Today, more than 4,000 pedestrians and 3,100 cyclists cross the bridge each day. If you cross over from Manhattan to Brooklyn, pay a visit to the Brooklyn Bridge Park and Brooklyn Heights Promenade. If you’re crossing over to Manhattan, visit the nearby South Street Seaport.
