This - the other being Park Slope - is one of the two most well known historic districts in New York. The Promenade offers glorious views of lower Manhattan, but just walking around to see the architecture is wonderful in itself. Readily accessible to Atlantic Avenue at its northern end for some of the most reasonably priced restaurants in the... More

So back before cars existed, they built this place. The architecture is mostly brownstones and other quaint forms of "packed like sardines" architecture. Then the song "Don't Fence Me In" came out, and we all packed up our crap, or sold it on eBay and moved to the suburbs. Now you can go back in time, so to speak, and... More

find the online walking tour of famous authors who have lived in this neighborhood. It truly is a great walk. Nice and shaded on a summer day with your movie-set looking brownstones, complete with stoops, flowers, and pretty people. This whole neighborhood has excellent shops, photo ops and a beautiful promenade with the best city views going.

Walking around Brooklyn Heights feels like walking through a museum. Its calm, cultured, beautiful, and never a waste of your time. Any day of the week, or any time of year is a good time. So much history within these streets and the townhouses are beautiful. Check out the name of these streets. Ever wonder how they got their names?... More

I have lived in Brooklyn most of my life. This area is my favorite place in the borough. Brooklyn Heights is a lovely neighborhood bordered by Atlantic Ave and the East River/Brooklyn Bridge. It has quaint small streets with rows of old charming brownstones and some lovely old churches. You can see the Transit museum at Boerum Pl & Schermerhorn... More

Lovely neighbourhood with beautiful houses in streets lined with trees. It is an expensive area as it is so close to the promenade. Lovely visit at dusk to explore the area

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.
