Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most famous bridge in the world, is another fabulous symbol of NYC. This suspension bridge, that joins lower Manhattan to Brooklyn, was built between 1867 and 1883. It was the first suspension bridge to use steel for its cable wire, and at the time it was built it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. Great views of Manhattan, and numerous photo opportunities. My dream is to have my wedding photo portrait taken here.
'Walking on the Brooklyn Bridge is an experience that is hard to match. New York is spread out in front, behind, on the left, on the right, and below you. Because the subway runs under the East River, and the vehicular level is under the pedestrian level, it had been said that Brooklyn Bridge is the only place on earth where an airplane could fly over a pedestrian who is walking over a car that is driving over a boat that is floating over a train.'

Many tourists, and even poets, have said the view of the New York skyline from the Brooklyn Bridge is the best view in the entire city.

Manhattan bridge is in view here. It has a dedicate section for subway. I don't think pedestrians can walk on that bridge.
You probably can appreciate that the pedestrians walkway is situated above all the traffic down there. As you can see, the bridge is pretty busy.
Brooklyn Bridge, I hereby devote my love to you ...
