Brooklyn Heights is the place place to live in NYC outside Manhattan (If one could afford living there). Luckily your lust visiting. With the Barkley Center nearby and easy transportation into the city, a hotel stay there may be a great deal. Stroll down Montague Street on a Sunny, warm weather day and take your camera with you.

The place itself is very nice and pleasant to be. A plus is the view of Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge.

After seeing the gorgeous Brooklyn Heights Promenade, be sure to tour the adjacent neighborhood - Brooklyn Heights is one of the loveliest of Brooklyn's many lovely residential districts. It is worth doing this with the architectural guidebook AIA GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY in hand. But remember, there is a lot to see; reserve at least 2 or 3 hours... More

You really can go back in time, as you walk this hamlet of a neighborhood, particularly on Middagh Street with the 200 year old Dutch wood frame houses with small doors (as people were smaller then). Pass by Plymouth Church(1849) on Orange and Hicks Street where Henry Ward Beecher gave rousing speeches in the mid 19th century. The church was... More
