Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn

4.8
#3 of 9 in Neighborhoods in Brooklyn
One of New York City's wealthiest neighborhoods, Brooklyn Heights occupies a riverside greenspace that houses a wide array of classic East Coast architecture. Known to the local Lenape tribe before the arrival of Dutch colonists in the mid-1600s, the area saw combat during the American Revolution and steadily grew in popularity as a desirable location in the following centuries. Wander through the tree-lined streets and admire the rowhouses that characterize this part of the borough, some dating from the 18th century. Stroll along the East River promenade for views of Manhattan across the water. Although the neighborhood sits in an outer borough, its transportation links make travel to the heart of New York quick and efficient.

Where to stay in Brooklyn

To enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline and have easy foot access to most of the borough's major attractions, stay in Brooklyn's downtown area. The borough's main tourism district, this area offers both luxurious accommodations for visitors wishing to splurge during their stay, as well as more economical lodgings for those traveling on a limited budget. If you don’t mind driving or taking the subway to most tourist sites, consider one of the neighborhoods outside Brooklyn's central area, such as Williamsburg or Prospect Park.
