Known as the “first suburb of America,” Brooklyn Heights is a mere five minutes from Manhattan on the subway and maintains its unique character and historic charm in its fast-moving city. With rows of brownstones and mansions, tree-lined streets and perhaps the best possible views of the New York City skyline, it’s easy to see why Brooklyn Heights is a coveted neighborhood.
Stretching from Old Fulton Street near the Brooklyn Bridge south to Atlantic Avenue and east from the river to Court Street, the area is known for its classic architecture, restaurant variety and vibrant culture. There are also several historic churches to see throughout, while pedestrian-only Montague Street, which ends at the scenic Brooklyn Heights promenade, is a favorite for visitors and locals alike. A stroll along the East River waterfront is also a popular pastime and great for taking in the views of the Brooklyn Bridge and New York City.
