Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn

(4.9/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I would stay here again in a heartbeat. We travelled into NYC easily and yet were able to retreat to a pretty, residential area when we wanted some respite from the bustle.  more »
  • Early 18th Century row house, spectacular views of Manhattan, some great restaurants and cafes, quiet and peaceful, tree-shaded, great place to take a long walk.  more »
  • Here you can stroll through the small streets and discovers beautiful houses. Here one does not notice the city.
