If you're in New York, Brooklyn is definitely worth a visit. Manhattan's less well known cousin has so much to offer.
Walking across Brooklyn Bridge is the best way of getting there. The Bridge itself is an architectural gem and it provides sweeping vistas of the New York skyline from a unique perspective. I always find that some of the best views of any city are from its bridges and this is certainly no exception.
