Questions About Walking the Brooklyn Bridge

Jump to last reply

My husband, our friend, and I will be spending this Saturday in New York City, arriving at 10:00 am and leaving at 7:00 pm (on a bus trip sponsored by our bank). If the weather is nice we would like to walk the Brooklyn Bridge. I've seen this recommended on several posts about things to do in NYC and we thought it might be fun to do, weather permitting. So I was hoping I could get some answers to my questions.

1) Where do we access the walkway for the Bridge on the Manhattan side? Is there a subway stop close by?

2) How long, on average, will it take to walk across the Bridge?

3) When we get to the Brooklyn side of the bridge, where do we end up?

4) Once we get there, what is there to do? Is there somewhere close by we can stop in and drink a good beer?

5) Do we have to walk back across the bridge to get to Manhattan, or is there a subway stop nearby that will take us across the water?

Any information would be appreciated. Thanks...

Robyn :)>-
