Brooklyn Heights is an unbelievably relaxed easy-to-walk-around area. It's got fantastic town houses and apartment complexes. There is a feeling of not being rushed or at a hectic pace here. And if you walk across the Brooklyn Bridge from Manhattan, you come down onto Fulton Street and then onto a small park Cadman Plaza, and are immediately into the Heights.... More

If you're old enough to remember the lyrics from the theme song of the Patty Duke Show, you're old enough to appreciate the sights in this neck o' the woods. From magnificently restored single-family town homes to venerable old churches, pristine sidewalks, and--perhaps best of all--a real "neighborhood feel" in NYC. A walking tour (either on your own or guided)... More

Brooklyn Heights is a beautiful neighbourhood to walk through and appreciate the historic and well maintained streetscapes. There are beautiful old houses, on the streets near the promenade and further in there is the grander architecture of the Brooklyn Borough Hall, The Brooklyn Historical Museum and the Temple Bar Building. I also recommend seeing the following: The Herman Behr Mansion... More

Rarely been here in the past but now understand why people want to live here - so different to the tourist traps around Times Square - so much history here, so authentic with wonderful old 19th century architecture - great for spending a few hours just walking around.

Loved these characterful Victorian old brownstone houses. We spent 3 hours or so wandering the streets of Brooklyn Heights,admiring the buildings and watched a film crew film a take for a pilot of The Tap, the streets were lined with vintage Sevilles and Oldsmobiles - real pimp style! I could move here tomorrow.

I live here so I'm way biased. Beautiful streets with great mid 19th century architecture. This is opposite of Times Square...beautiful residential hood. No cheesy chains. People know each other and respect each other. Many wonderful restaurants...Sociale, Jack the Horse...great views of city. Walk the promenade. Not super exciting if you want flash, but a great place to see best... More

Pleasant neighbourhood to take a wander through. Bring your guidebook so you don't miss any of the highlights and a camera to capture the sights. People are very friendly and it's very easy to get around.

well if you are at the Promanade, then you are here already. Nice taste of local living in brooklyn. Original brownstones and older apt. buildings, but a small local feel. there a few shops and cafes to stop in, but for the most part it is required walking to get to the promonade at the west end.
