Brooklyn Heights

Neighborhood Image

Brooklyn Heights stretches from the Brooklyn Bridge to the north, Atlantic Avenue to the south, Court Street to the east and Columbia Street Waterfront to the west; located between the neighborhoods of <a href=''>Cobble Hill</a> and <a href=''>DUMBO</a>.

The neighborhood, featuring the first historic district in New York City, is composed of brownstone blocks dotted with smaller wood-framed houses and carriage houses. At the Columbia Street Waterfront end is the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, a five-block long walkway that offers one of the best views of the lower Manhattan skyline. Montague Street serves as the main commercial district with boutiques, restaurants, and stores but there exist other neighborhood enclaves, such as the "fruit streets" – Orange, Pineapple and Cranberry – which has its own small restaurant row. Furthermore, Brooklyn Heights is within walking to the restaurants and shops of Court and Smith Streets.

It is easily accessible by the N & R trains at the Court Street station, the A & C trains at the High Street–Brooklyn Bridge station, the 4 & 5 trains at the Borough Hall station, and the 2 & 3 trains at the Borough Hall & Clark Street stations. All stations are either one or two stops from the City.
