One of the most beautiful areas of New York City to explore. It is full of small streets, old buildings, gorgeous architecture, mom and pop shops, fun boutiques, and inexpensive tasty diverse restaurants. Convenient to subway.

The tour, on an air conditioned bus on a 95 degree day, was informative and friendly. The bus driver and guide visited each guest to ensure they were enjoying the trip and being taken care of. Williamsburg was particularly interesting as it... More

Although we live in the heart of a city, I don't think I could live in Manhattan. It's too hectic and noisy for me. Brooklyn Heights is another matter. It's peaceful,and calm, with lovely streets. I could happily live there - if I could afford the price of a house, that is! The streets were a mix of wide and... More

Just be there 30 minutes before sunset - there's no better advise! If you have lucky and a little intimacy with your camera (or cel phone) you'll get wonderful pictures guarantee. Other than that just enjoy the neighborhood and the great places to grab something to eat at Court Street.

We enjoyed our walking tour of Brooklyn Heights so very much! We took our tour at 6:00 p.m., June 12, 2014 and Alicia was our very knowledgeable guide. We saw homes of famous writers and stars,(Truman Capote, Marilyn Monroe, Arthur Miller, etc) famous places to eat like Grimaldi's in the nearby DUMBO area, and finally LOADS of American history. I...
