Is Brooklyn in Manhattan?
No. Brooklyn forms the western part of Long Island and once was a separate city before joining Greater New York in 1898. Manhattan is an island, separated from Brooklyn by the East River and bounded by the Hudson and Harlem Rivers; until 1898 Manhattan alone formed New York City.

There are six area codes in use in New York: Manhattan itself uses area codes 212 and 646; Brooklyn and the other boroughs are covered by codes 718, 347, and 929. There is… also a further code, 917, which covers all five New York boroughs.
Brooklyn was its own city until 1898, when it became part of New York City. The construction of the Brooklyn Bridge, which was completed in 1883, was crucial to this consolida…tion, as it was the first bridge to join the two cities and make travelling from one to the other relatively more convenient. Before then, people could only travel from Brooklyn to Manhattan and back by boat.
The East River. Manhattan is separated from Brooklyn and Queens by the East River, which is not a true river, but a tidal strait. It connects to the ocean on both sides: it f…lows south from the bay known as the Long Island Sound, down the east side of Manhattan and the west side of Queens and Brooklyn (Queens and Brooklyn take up the western end of Long Island) and into the Atlantic Ocean at New York Harbor.
Both the Brooklyn and the Manhattan Bridge connect the borough of Brooklyn to the borough of Manhattan. Both bridges span the East River, which is actually not a river, but a…n estuary, or a tidal strait. Unlike a true river, it connects to the ocean on both sides. It flows south from the Long Island Sound, down the east side of Manhattan and the west side of Queens and Brooklyn, and into the Atlantic Ocean.
I think you may have accidentally written the question wrong. Manhattan is separated from Brooklyn and Queens by the East River, which is not a true river (and is NOT "an arm …of the Hudson"), but an estuary or tidal strait. The East River connects to the ocean on both sides. It flows south from the bay known as the Long Island Sound, down the east side of Manhattan and the west side of Brooklyn and Queens, and into the Atlantic Ocean at Lower Manhattan. The Bronx is separated from Brooklyn and Queens by the Long Island Sound. Manhattan is separated from the Bronx by the Harlem River, which IS an "arm of the Hudson." It branches off of the Hudson River, flows down the top of Manhattan and the bottom of the Bronx, and into the East River. See the Related Link below for a New York City subway map. The Hudson, Harlem, and East Rivers, as well as the Long Island Sound, are clearly labeled.

The entrance is in the City Hall neighborhood, on the east side of City Hall Park. Go up Church Street, turn right onto Vesey Street, and follow Vesey Street one block. When y…ou come to the end of the block, you will reach an intersection: Broadway runs perpendicular to Vesey Street, heading south, and Ann Street and Park Row split off from and run parallel (or, sort of parallel) to Vesey Street. You need to take the road on the left, which is called Park Row. Park Row leads you onto the bridge. You will be able to tell which street is Park Row, not just because it's on your left, but because Ann Street (on your right) runs in the opposite direction that you're going, and Broadway (further right than Ann Street) runs perpendicular to Vesey Street (away from the bridge).
There are three bridges connecting Manhattan to Brooklyn: the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge and Williamsburg Bridge. You can remember them, and the order they are in from …south to north, very easily, as the acronym formed by their names is the name of a popular kind of car, the BMW: Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg.
Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, Williamsburg bridge
No, they are not the same bridge. Three bridges connect Lower Manhattan to Brooklyn: the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge and Williamsburg Bridge. The Brooklyn Bridge is th…e furthest south, the Manhattan Bridge is in the middle, and the Williamsburg Bridge is the furthest north. The Brooklyn Bridge was originally called the "New York and Brooklyn Bridge," which is perhaps where some of the confusion comes from. But when the bridge opened in 1883, New York City consisted mostly of just Manhattan. It was not until 15 years later, in 1898, that the five boroughs -- Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island -- united to form modern-day New York City. Before then, Brooklyn was its own city (the other three consisted of small towns and farmland), so the bridge was called the "New York and Brooklyn Bridge" because it united the city of New York and the city of Brooklyn. Of course, today Brooklyn is part of New York City, so calling it the "New York and Brooklyn Bridge" is redundant.

3 - Williamsburg, Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges
The Brooklyn Bridge is 5989 feet. 5280 feet is equal to 1 mile. About a 15 min walk normally. 3 hours during a blackout. Source: Did both. Latter was not pleasant.
As far as the length of the Williamsburg or Brooklyn bridges... Approximately 7500 ft. Timewise, a point in Manhattan to a point in Brooklyn could take anywhere from 5m to 2…hrs drive, given the large size of BK n high traffic in Manhattan (Rush hour, it could be 3-5 hrs to get from Uptown to East New York)
Brooklyn is just across the East River from downtown Manhattan. So the distance between them is less than a mile.
They are right next to each other, separated by the East River. So it takes only minutes to get from Manhattan to Brooklyn, or vice versa, over any of the bridges and tunnels …that span the East River and connect them. About 3 minutes, or up to 30 in bad traffic.
