After crossing that Brooklyn Bridge, don't turn around and walk back. In stead walk into the historic district of Brooklyn heights. This is what you see in the movies (also when it is a movie about NYC 150 years ago). The neighborhood is a gem and has a lovely, laid-back atmosphere. And walk the promenade and the newly built waterfront... More

Easy to get to on the 2 or 3 subway train from Manhattan. Get of at Clark Street, Brooklyn, and walk back a couple of blocks. The brown houses in Brooklyn Heights are superb. The views of the Manhattan Skyline are spectacular and iconic. I would recommend that you arrive shortly before it gets dark as you get unfettered views... More

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 Skyline Brooklyn tour which included Brooklyn Heights and Williamsburg neighbourhoods as well as the centre of town. 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

Go to Brooklin Heights for unforgotable photos, eat in a nice Italian taverna...enjoy the view and come back to Manhetan crossing the Brooklin bridge by walk! You will enjoy in one of the best nights in NY!

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

We visited Brooklyn Heights after completeting our walk on the Brooklyn Bridge. The area is so charmy and we were amazed by all the historical and beautiful buildings. There are a lot of opportunities to take good photos when walking around both on yourself but also on others doing their thing. One of the best things with the visit was... More
