Brooklyn Heights is an upscale neighborhood, loaded with outdoor cafes. At the end of Montague Street (the main shopping area) is the Brooklyn Prominade, a wonderful place to stroll and see unbelievable views of Manhattan.

Brooklyn Heights is a great neighborhood. Walk along the Promenade to view lower Manhattan. Eat pizza at Grimaldi's. Walk beneath the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge. Take pictures from Fulton's Landing. Shop at Fulton's Mall, several blocks of stores. Take a walk down Montague Street, one of my favorites. And, while there, be sure to go into The Garden of Eden !!... More

Brooklyn Heights has a lot to offer both for locals and out of towers. There are always new hot spots opening. Even if you live in the area, you'll never run out of places to discover, and things to do.

We lived here in the early 2000's and loved it! Since it is a landmarked area, the view from the street is never changing. Many of the stores on Henry Street are still there although the cinema is moving. Close to the Promenade with spectacular views of lower Manhattan and away from the hustle and bustle of 'the city.'

A real doze of a typical, stylish neighborhood. Lovely trees cool off the heat as you walk the "fruit " streets. Lots of children and families around going for a stroll or a ride in their free time. Scenic views from the Promenade are a plus.

This is a nice area to take a stroll and take in Brooklyn vibes. There are shops and restaurants, little mom and pop stores, and of course people watching. You can get to the promenade or the park from this area.

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.
