The views across the river to Manhattan are stunning, and the sight of the bridge itself as you look down its length at all the cables is quite something. The walkway is split into two sides, with pedestrians on one side and cyclists on the other. This was obvious from signs and markings on the footpath, but lots of people still walked into the cyclist lane and were duly advised otherwise by angry passing cyclists.
There are a number of telescopes dotted along the path, which you can put money in to view the skyline and Liberty Island a little better. There were also lots of people taking photos, including us, and many people were asking others to take their pictures for them. There was a great community feeling on the bridge of everyone helping out everyone else.
I would definitely suggest that anyone in New York should walk the bridge. If you can do only one way, preferably from Brooklyn to Manhattan.
