Beautiful homes in a lovely area with trees and barely any vehicles. Such a quaint neighborhood with nice people. I love the dog park, too. It's very old brooklyn meets new because it leads to the brooklyn bridge park.

After a lovely afternoon on the promenade, we had a fantastic dinner at Terresa's Restaurant that specializes in a menu of wonderful Polish selections. We had the incredible potato pancakes & meat loaf...YUM!

We visited NY and were lucky enough to stay with friends who are living in Brooklyn Heights. This was a revelation for us, we’d all be to NY before so had done a lot of the standard big buildings, central park etc, but Brooklyn Heights – Wow! This is a wonderful community/village just outside New York, the buildings are staggeringly... More

Always a great place to visit when we walk over the Brooklyn Bridge or go to Atlantic Blvd shopping center.. Wonderful architecture and great feel with cute street names like Pineapple, etc. Lots of very friendly small shops and friendly locals.

I visited Brooklyn Heights as part of a walking tour with Free Tours by Foot (Onel was the tour guide). This is a very beautiful neighborhood with a lot of history in it. I got to see Cadman Plaza, the Watchtower headquarters, Brooklyn Heights Promenade, Hillary Clinton headquarters (I am not a Democrat) and DUMBO. This is definitely a must... More

Took a walk around the streets for about an hour, totally absorbed by gorgeous Brownstones. Reminded me of Europe!

This is the loveliest and oldest part of Brooklyn, so the buildings are architecturally interesting and the streets cobbled in places. It's my favourite part of the borough.

This was a welcome change from mid town Manhattan. Tree lined streets with impressive houses made of the red/brownstone typical of the area.

I love Brooklyn Heights! This is where I stay every time I travel to Brooklyn. It has so many wonderful restaurants on Montague St. - everything from casual American fare, Thai, Chinese, Mexican, Polish, ice cream...a little of something for everyone! Also be sure to walk down to the Promenade for some spectacular views of the Statue of Liberty, Manhattan... More
