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.

This is a great historic area and an excellent place to spend a couple of hours strolling taking in the beautiful brownstones, stopping for a coffee. You can easily combine this with a half to full day exploring the promenade, foreshore park and DUMBO. New York is so much more than Manhattan.

We hadn't planned to spend any time in Brooklyn and sometimes it's those unplanned parts of the trip which are the best. After a walk on the Promenade, we strolled and shopped on Montague St (among others), and had a great stop for coffee. It's quiet and classy and funky here and we'll be certain to return!

This area should not be missed by any Tourist visiting New York... Montague Street should be walked entirely (5 blocks), getting a perfect view of manhattan from Pier 3.

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.
