Living in Brooklyn Heights
"America's First Suburb", Brooklyn Heights, stretches from the Brooklyn Bridge's nearby Old Fulton Street to the East River. It's directly across the East River from New York City, with public transportation plentiful enough to make trips into Manhattan from Brooklyn Heights a snap.
Gorgeous architecture is a highlight of this picturesque and historic neighborhood. Large composed of picturesque rowhouses, Brooklyn Heights features a great range of architectural styles and was the first neighborhood protected by the 1965 Landmarks Preservation Law of New York City.
The Promenade is a favorite spot amongst locals, displaying stunning views of the Statue of Liberty, the Manhattan Skyline and the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridge. It also features an unobstructed view of the Macy's July 4th fireworks.
The preservation of the beautiful architecture and original homes is enhanced by the scarcity of high-rise buildings. This detail helps to create a small-town atmosphere in the middle of one of the most vibrant and populated areas in the country.
Numerous subway lines service the area and proximity to bridges into Manhattan enhance the accessibility of this prominent neighborhood.
The newly expanded Brooklyn Bridge Park is a jewel in the crown of this neighborhood. Safe, clean, tree-lined streets offer the perfect blend of old-world charm and big city appeal wrapped into one beautiful and unique neighborhood.
