This is a beautiful neighborhood in Brooklyn with New York City views and next to the Brooklyn Bridge. You must stroll over the bridge and check out this old historic neighborhood.

You can either take a left off of Brooklyn Bridge or get off the subway at High Street station and head towards the east river through the Brooklyn War Memorial and then up Pineapple or Orange street. This will put you on the Brooklyn Promenade. Allow 30 minutes to an hour depending on how much you want to explore.

cross the Brooklyn Bridge by using the subway and start your walk up the hill to get to the point called Brooklyn Heights. Get to the side of the river to look from the distance on the famous skyline of New York City. Allow at least 30 minutes at this spot. Works well with a walk on the Brooklyn bridge... More

This place is full of charm and wonderful to walk around. Then stroll back to Henry St for lunch. Hallowe'en was spectacular everyone decorated their homes and everyone was so friendly, just chatting on the street when we stopped to take photos.

Tucked along the East River, Brooklyn Heights was the first 'suburb' of Manhattan as the Wall Streets moved to a more country-like area. The architecture is wonderful, and a walk along the Promenade offers an ever-changing view of the river and the new park below. History abounds -- in the division of the area by the Brooklyn Queens Expy, Walt... More

History awaits you here. Narrow streets, gorgeous townhomes, a short walk to the Brooklyn Hts. Promenade with its terrific views of Manhattan. Brooklyn Hts is well worth the visit if you have more than 3 days for NYC on your visit.

Gorgeous architecture - fab for a wander on a sunny day, relative calm after a week in Manhattan. Very nice places to stop off along the way for food, drinks or icecream.
