The Brooklyn Bridge is an amazing photography subject with Manhattan as a backdrop. The bridge provides easy access and has a grass lawn to set up and relax on.

Escaping the hustle and bustle of the city doesn't always require actually leaving the city. Hanging out next to the East River and focusing on photographing the Brooklyn Bridge can be just what you need to clear your head and get your fix for some outdoors time. This is a great spot to practice your night photography - the city lights and river reflections create some pretty awesome landscapes.

Grab a coffee and a crepe from Roomr around the corner and post up for a few hours of shooting, snacking, and chillin.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

A Fantastic Photography Subject

The Brooklyn Bridge is a fantastic photography subject with Manhattan as a backdrop. The bridge is easy to get to and on.

Pack your wide angle and an ND filter.

On a weekend many yachts and sailboat are up and down the river. I prefer doing long exposure photography which will help blur out those objects.
