Nice huge buildings and parks. Nice brown stone buildings. Lots of trees and well planned roads in a busy New York City borough of Brooklyn. Brooklyn Heights’ beautiful architecture, waterfront real estate, and breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline.neeeds to be seen without fail. Walk along the Brooklyn Heights Promenade and some nice and pretty wooden and red buildings.

I did a two hour walk amongst the charming brownstones full of history and style. Fascinating to look at properties where the exterior shots for Cher's Moonstruck were done, Truman Capote wrote Breakfast at Tiffanys, Arthur Miller wrote Death of a Salesman and The Crucible etc. etc. Highly recommend you spend time just strolling this gorgeous precinct.

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.
