THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE From Manhattan, you can get to the bridge across the street from City Hall Park. It's quite a walk from end to end. It's just as satisfying to go to the middle of the bridge and then walk back. That way, you've truly walked the length of the bridge. If you are a trooper and want to head to Brooklyn, visit the beautiful section of Brooklyn Heights which is located just south of the bridge. Both bicycles and pedestrians are free to use the wooden walkway which is elevated over the traffic. You'll find a great cross section of people coming and going on this bridge......it's by no means just for tourists!!! A monument to man's ingenuity and creativity, this world famous steel suspension bridge was designed by architect John Roebling between 1867 and 1883. Many lives were lost constructing the first "hotlink" between Brooklyn and Manhattan. The bridge's renowned double-arched towers were set firmly into the East River's bedrock while the unprecedented use of steel cables allowed for future bridges to span great distances
