Walk the Majestic Brooklyn Bridge
A 2-hour walking tour over New York’s most beautiful bridge, highlighting its engineering & dramatic history.
If you come to NYC and only have time for one activity, walk the Brooklyn Bridge! Learn about the engineering, the politics, the personalities, the tragedies and finally, a civic triumph like no other which resulted in the most famous Bridge in America.
The Brooklyn Bridge is a work of art, architecture, civil engineering, civic pride & history. A job with absolutely no precedent – when the Great Bridge was completed in 1883, it was twice as tall, twice as long and twice as heavy as any bridge in comparison. And it was built by hand and steam-driven construction cranes – well before the age of electricity! It was such a one-of-its-kind creation that upon its completion, it quickly became a worldwide sensation.
Our tour includes a 45-minute leisurely stroll across its span, and a walk down through DUMBO to Fulton Ferry Landing and Brooklyn Bridge Park for awe-inspiring views of Manhattan and the New York Harbor where your guide will point out the skyscrapers in the city as well as the history of Brooklyn.
