About the Neighborhood

Bring even the most jaded New Yorker to Brooklyn Heights and you’ll see him temporarily silenced, sated and even renewed by the views. Such is the power of the ultra-iconic perspective from the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge, and the sight of downtown’s clutter of towers—plus Lady Liberty—from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Dubbed “America’s first suburb”, it lacks Brooklyn’s usual FOMO-inducing restaurant churn. Instead, its pre-war rowhouses are serviced by a few choice eateries that, whether new or old, are treated as neighbourhood institutions.
 

The Brooklyn Bridge: an icon since 1883.

Don’t leave without a red velvet cake.

The Promenade’s the place to see July 4th fireworks shooting from nearby Liberty Island.

Formerly home to writing legends Thomas Wolfe and W.H. Auden.

No matter how retro looking, most of NYC’s 10,000 phone booths are now Wi-Fi hotspots.

High maintenance dogs deserve a groom at Perfect Paws.

Built not for the (incredible) views, but to shield brownstones from highway noise.

Meticulous maintenance plus history make the neighborhood a frequent movie set.

The Brooklyn Bridge Park Boathouse offers free kayaking.

Brooklyn Heights is home to several prestigious high schools.
