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.

Amazing water front front views of lower Manhattan at this location. Neighbourhood is quite safe during the day. Don't know about evening if you were looking to visit then.

Full of beautiful, well-kept 19th century homes and buildings, Brooklyn Heights is a great place to walk and sight see. Trees and beautiful gardens adorn the area. And the commercial streets are full of gorgeous 19th and early 20th century buildings. Some nice restaurants, bars, and shops are on Montague and Joralemon Sts. Take the subway or walk across the...

Beautiful neighborhood to take a walk and have access to BBP. I recommend to reach it by Subway or Bus, very difficult to find parking in Brooklyn Heights. In the summer the Brownstones are adorned with beautiful flower bakets.

This is a great older neighborhood with amazing old brownstones. A lot quieter than Manhattan, and there are lots of great restaurants to choose from. Easy access to the subway as well.

We used to live there. We loved this neighborhood. Must visit if you are in NY city. View of Manhattan skylines from Brooklyn side is just breathtaking. Take a walk to Atlantic Avenue to Sahadi's which is a middle eastern grocery store. We loved to buy freshly made baba ganoush there.

Take a walking tour past fascinating brownstone homes, churches and all sorts of pubs and restaurants. Breathe in the history where Winston Churchill's mother Jenny was born, where Truman Capote lived and wrote BREAKFAST AT TIFFANYS, and where so many celebrities live today.

I love this neighborhood and I plan to live here. It is a great family and couple environment. It has a lot of good restaurants and friendly bars. Montague street specifically is great with a park at the end of it, which overlooks the Hudson River and piers.
