Brooklyn Heights Reviews

I've been to Brooklyn Heights about 3 times in my life and I can't stress enough how beautiful it is! There's so many great landmarks, brownstones and of course the beautiful Brooklyn Promenade. Everyone has to go at least twice in their life! I promise you won't regret it. It's peaceful, it's beautiful and the view is amazing!

I’ve live here for 38 years. The charm of Greenwich Village without most of the crowds. The first historic landmark neighborhood in NYC. It’s almost a given that if you live here you live with in a landmark.

Neighborhood stores may be expensive but most have character, though the chains maintain contact with the wider market. Many excellent restaurants, and of course, The View.
This is a beautiful historic district. Great architecture, very quiet and safe, phenomenal access to transportation, shopping, and dining. Family friendly, pet friendly, bike friendly.
