Take the 2 or 3 Subway to Clark Street. Once outside the station, turn right and walk down Clark Street past Hicks Street to the junction with Willow St. Turn left into Willow and you will walk past some glorious, beautifully preserved brownstones. At the end of the street, turn right down Pierrepoint and this will lead you to the Promenade. Once you have got your breath back (from the view not the walk), you could make your way back up Montague Street then left into Hicks St which will take you, via Middagh and Everitt Streets, to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway Underpass and on to Old Fulton St. Grimaldis is at No. 19. Getting onto the bridge involves finding the steps but I would suggest you ask for directions once you get to Grimaldis.

This is an amazing bridge to gaze at from a distance and a very cool bridge to walk across. Great views coming and going...lots of cool places to check out and some good places to get something to eat since you will work up an appetite. Also a cool little beach.

The historical architecture of this bridge is stunning, and especially beautiful at night. Walking or biking across is such a cool experience, although a bit chaotic with the crowds.Recommended for:History Buffs

There is nothing like Brooklyn Bridge. Rain or shine, skyline views or hidden in the fog - walk across it - look at cars and think that when it was built cars were not even a concept. Do you know that one pillar sits on the rock and another one buried deep in the sand? Don't miss it - Brooklyn Bridge deserves your time.

I have lived in NYC for over 5 years and only just recently did I walk the Brooklyn Bridge. I have been missing out! Fantastic views... it really makes you appreciate the architecture of NYC.
