We walked the Manhattan Bridge to Brooklyn and then Brooklyn Bridge back to Manhattan. The Manhattan Bridge can be scary for those afraid of heights and the ground you walk on shaking. The metro is passing by on the left and the water is far below you on your right. If you're afraid of heights then there is nothing to worry about walking the Brooklyn Bridge. You walk in the center of the bridge on a secure wood path that has a walking lane and bike lane. The views you get of Manhattan are amazing and the experience is well worth the walk.
