“A quiet urban place to stroll around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Go to Brooklyn Visitors Center, Borough Hall , Joralemon St. and
get a guide to Brooklyn Heights. Then walk along Orange St. Pineapple St, Willow St. Pay attention to the many churches Plymouth Church and Unitarian Church for instance. Its very relaxing.Don´t miss Hunt´s Lane at Henry St. near Remsen St. You´ll get hungry. Don´t worry, Montague St. will take care of this.

“Nice for the view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Unless you are walking over the Brooklyn Bridge, it's just a lovely neighborhood in New York. If you walked over then by all means, go to the promenade and take in the magnificent view of the skyline.

“A nice evening, Trendy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Love to go to Brooklyn Heights for the evening before sunset. We go to the Promenade and walk, watching the sun set over the Hudson RIver and Manhattan skyline. Walking the treelined steets loaded with history and beautiful brownstones takes you back in time and you can feel what it must have been like to live here "nostalgic America". Lots of place to eat or have coffee and desert.
