Take a Long Stroll in History
Oct. 2021
This is probably the most pretty neighborhood in Brooklyn and has long been the home of important people like Truman Capote. Some very grand apartment houses, but also lots of brownstones. And then there is the sublime promenade...

Historic upscale neighborhood with great views of lower Manhattan
May 2021
This historic upscale neighborhood was one of the first commuter residential areas built after lower Manhattan got too crowded. You can see why early Americans moved here when you see the great views from the Promenade. Most of the current buildings are apartments, with several street filled with nice restaurants.

We really like this very walkable area of Brooklyn, with its beautiful houses and shops. It is so pleasant to poke around and take in the sights, while having a great view of Manhattan across the river.

Beautiful neighborhood!
Dec. 2019
Spent a morning walking the streets of this lovely neighborhood. Beautiful brownstones, playgrounds tucked in to the corners of streets, parents out with their babies in strollers. Interesting shops, beautiful old churches. Quiet, clean. A delight for the senses!

Beautiful walking neighborhood

I lived here 30 years ago and always visit when I'm back in town. It's quiet and there's lots to see with great architecture, restaurants, and the promenade.

We have been to Brooklyn Heights several times. It is an upscale area of Brooklyn with many good shops and restaurants.

On a nice day it's a good opportunity to visit the various play areas and soccer fields on the water. You'll get a wonderful view of NYC and the Statue of liberty.

The area has many upscale hotels and good subway access to NYC.

The Upscale Neighborhood
Sep. 2019
We spent an afternoon showing our friends this exceptional urban neighborhood. Wouldn't we all love to live here? Lots of important people have done so in glorious row houses and apartment buildings. Very spiffy and close to Manhattan.

Friends moved here so I came to dinner and stayed over. Such a charming neighborhood. Great and gracious old buildings- some historic- wonderful place to walk , especially the Promenade, a lovely walk along the river. Worth an Uber over from Manhattan.
