I don’t need to tell you that you must visit it, you already know that. The question is how do you cross it and from where? Unless you are very short on available time, I would recommend walking across the bridge. Firstly, it’s not that long a walk so everybody can do it and secondly, it gives a pretty spectacular view of both sides of the river. One thing to keep in mind is that this bridge is used by many residents for their commute. So it’s always busy and crowded. But the bridge is still long enough to give you quite a few opportunities to get that perfect picture. One thing you do not want to do is accidentally stand on the cycling path for your picture. Nothing makes for a great picture like a biker pedaling towards you at full speed. Seriously, don’t do that.
Now, there are many ways to access the bridge so you could choose the one closest to you. However, for those of you who want to take the scenic route to even reach the bridge, I’d suggest entering from the Brooklyn Bridge Park which looks something like this.
