The Brooklyn Bridge: one of the most iconic structures in all of New York City. This historic landmark was opened in 1883, but nowadays is a hotbed for meandering tourists, wedding photographers, and the random cycling commuter. It also serves as a bridge for vehicles to traverse the East River to and from Brooklyn. This is a definite must visit if you have some extra time and don’t mind crowds or short walks. Best part of the walk is along the way you get stellar views of both Manhattan and Brooklyn. You can spot the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, the One World Trade Center, Governor’s Island, and Lady Liberty to name a few. Make sure to check out the Brooklyn Bridge Park which is conveniently located on the Brooklyn side of the bridge. What was once an industrial hub has now been turned into a sprawling green space with even more fantastic views of the city. This is a great place to walk or get some food as you explore the piers.
