This New York City centerpiece connects Manhattan and Brooklyn over the East River. Discover the finest places to stay near the Brooklyn Bridge – all bookable with Culture Trip.

You’ll no doubt recognize this century-old feat of engineering from screen hits like Sex and the City and Spiderman. Built in 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge was constructed to connect the Financial District of Manhattan with Brooklyn. Stretching over a mile from end to end, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world at the time. Today, it’s a popular tourist attraction, thanks to the elevated pedestrian walkway which offers some of the best New York skyline views. Looking to stay close? Discover our pick of top hotels.
