The neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights where I work never fails to astound me. The houses have this rustic feeling of being around for about 100 years and, yet, well maintained. Look at the fine detail of the ironwork on each of the buildings and the molding. It's a delight!!!

Great views of Manhattan, good history, neat old houses. We took a Big Onion Walking tour and in two hours we got a lot of information.

I loved Brooklyn Heights! I could stroll down these beautiful, charming, little treelined streets for hours! This is the Brooklyn I came to see and did not leave disappointed. I just wish I could have stayed closer to this area. Cranberry St. Orange St Pinapple St a photographer lovers dream! I only wish we had neighborhoods like this back home!

We had the New York City Walking Cards and enjoy the tour of Brooklyn Heights that's provided. I would highly recommend this as a purchase for anyone visiting or moving to New York City. It's a great way getting to know the different areas.

We took the subway over to Brooklyn Heights on our way to Smorgasburg at Pier 5. What a beautiful neighborhood! It's full of tree lined streets, gorgeous brownstones, lots of shops & cafes! I pinned it for our next trip to NYC...this would be a great place to stay! So quaint, quiet and yet just a subway stop away from... More
