The Brooklyn Bridge is perhaps the most iconic bridge in New York City and certainly the most popular to walk across. The bridge at any time and from any angle is impressive, but there is nothing quite like experiencing it when no one else is around. You’ll have to get up early, but seeing the Brooklyn Bridge at sunrise is truly magical. Here is what you will see by exploring Brooklyn Bridge at sunrise – and what to do after your beautiful morning walk.
Starting from the Brooklyn side will give you the best views of the Manhattan skyline behind the bridge. To get there via the subway, take the 2, 3 train to either Clark Street or Borough Hall, the R train to Court Street, the 4 or 5 train to Borough Hall, or the A, C, or F train to Jay Street – MetroTech.
After the Brooklyn Bridge
Explore Brooklyn Bridge Park
In addition to sweeping views along the East River, Brooklyn Bridge Park offers its visitors a variety of different entertainment and dining options. Highlights include Jane’s Carousel, Pier 5 sports complex, and The River Café. In the summer, there is even a pop-up pool (how cool!). The restaurant Fornino offers rooftop seating where you can enjoy pizza and cocktails while taking in views of the city.
