Yet another must in New York is to walk the Brooklyn Bridge. It really is an incredible piece of engineering. Rob and I decided to take the trip after our day exploring Downtown as it wasn't too much further and it would be good timing to see the sunset too. I would watch exactly what time because after 5 it was crazy busy (heading over a little later would be better and you would still get to see the sunset) and not very pleasant but it did quieten down for the second half.
That area of Brooklyn is definitely worth walking all the way over to see too. I can't speak for the rest of Brooklyn because we didn't get to see much but the area around the Brooklyn Bridge Park is beautiful. Make sure to wander around a little further in to see some very pretty houses.
It is also easy walking distance to the Manhattan bridge so we did that too! P.S Outfit deets coming soon.
