Sightseeing and Attractions: (Duration: 4 hours with a Licensed NYC Tour Guide)
Opened in 1883 after thirteen years of construction, the Brooklyn Bridge was built across the East River to connect Manhattan with the then-rural city of Brooklyn. From the beginning, the bridge’s designer, John A. Roebling, planned not just a structure of convenience, but a great work of art that would stand the test of time. The Brooklyn Bridge is a fully accessible bridge, with a center lane above traffic open to bicycle and pedestrian traffic. Your fully guided tour takes you on a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge; a walk taken every day by commuters and tourists, and during times of crisis, such as after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11. The tour also includes an exploration around City Hall Park and the DUMBO neighborhood in Brooklyn.
Being able to travel all the way from Times Square to the Brooklyn Bridge and into the neighborhoods of Brooklyn is such a unique experience that many cities can’t offer. The construction of the infamous Brooklyn Bridge changed the way the people of New York live their life and travel on a day-to-day basis. It’s a site that must be seen when visiting New York City.
