Prepare to be amazed by the views! Very relaxing. Enjoy and take your time. Plenty of restaurants along Montague Street to have a nice meal on your way back to Manhattan after watching the sunset (or before!)

It was the first time being in New York City for myself and my boyfriend and we somehow ended up saving Brooklyn till last... and thankfully we did, as it was our favourite part of the holiday.

The heights is a very beautiful neighborhood with loads of great restaurants and a great place for someone who likes to look at historic homes of fantastic beauty. I think that you can literally get lost in time just by walking for hours on end looking at these homes from the sidewalk

Beautiful tree lined streets with old beautiful historic buildings including homes where Truman Capote and Aurther Miller wrote. Very quiet and full of many different styles of historical homes. Found it to be one of the most beautiful places to visit as part of an NYC visit.

This area is a must do if you're interested in architecture - lots of beautiful brownstone houses. A really beautiful area of Brooklyn to roam around in.

A beautiful neighborhood for views of Manhattan. Gorgeous expensive homes and beautiful quiet side streets - lovely little cafes and shops - a great side trip to an outer borough!

Walked through here on a Sunday afternoon on the way to the Church Avenue subway. It was lovely to see a typical family orientated neighbourhood away from the glitz and glare of Times Square area. There was even a local market/ bring & buy fundraiser with stalls set up int the middle of the next street.

Took a really nice afternoon walk in Brooklyn Heights, really felt like you were somewhere special. Beautiful architecture, friendly people, nice views peeking through the trees - you can tell there is a lot of history here in these buildings, and those who own them take pride and caring for that heritage.
