For great views of the East River and Governors Island.

The Brooklyn Bridge connects the two New York districts of Manhattan and Brooklyn, which the East River separates. There are two paths on the bridge - one for pedestrians and one for cyclists. Since the Brooklyn Bridge is a real magnet for visitors, there is usually a dense crowd here. One of the reasons for this is that you can take great photos of the East River, Lower Manhattan, Governors Island and the Statue of Liberty here. On the other side of the nearly two-kilometre-long bridge are waiting, among other things, on the various piers, attractions such as the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, the Brooklyn Bridge Park, sports facilities, playgrounds, bike rentals and restaurants.
