Brooklyn Heights which includes a house

Scenic views, historic brownstones, narrow streets and fantastic restaurants and bars help create one of Brooklyn’s most charming neighborhoods.

Brooklyn Heights is one of Brooklyn’s most historic and celebrated neighborhoods. Find small town charm in America’s biggest city, take in the neighborhood’s diverse architecture and enjoy the unique views of Lower Manhattan’s skyscrapers from the promenade. Discover some of Brooklyn’s best food, drinks and shopping along Montague Street.

Brooklyn Heights is hailed as New York City’s first suburb and has a wide array of architectural styles as a result. Step back in time as you stroll through the leafy streets, passing blocks of mid 19th-century row houses. Admire historic brownstones and mansions that American literary greats such Truman Capote once called home.

Delve into Brooklyn’s 400-year-old history of art and culture at the Brooklyn Historical Society, a landmark Renaissance revival building. Explore a subway stop turned museum and uncover the history of New York’s world-famous subway system at the New York Transit Museum. Among Brooklyn Height’s many historic churches, the Plymouth Church of the Pilgrims stands out. In the early 19th century it served as a safe haven for slaves as part of Harriet Tubman’s Underground Railroad.

Make your way to Columbia Heights and take in its brownstones and Greek revival architecture on the tree-lined Cranberry, Orange and Pineapple streets. Relax at the Fruit Street Sitting Area, a small tree-lined park that connects Columbia Heights to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Join the jogging and dog-walking locals and watch the sun set behind Lower Manhattan.

When night falls, atmospheric gas-lit street lamps bring out the old-city charm of the neighborhood even more. To experience a true Brooklyn Heights throwback visit the nautical-themed Montero’s Bar and Grill. Unlike the name suggests, this local dive doesn’t serve grilled food, but it’s good for karaoke on weekends.

Brooklyn Heights is located on the East River just across from Lower Manhattan, with subway stops at Clark Street, Court Street and Borough Hall. Upon arrival, slow your pace to enjoy the relative calm of this beautifully preserved New York neighborhood.

"Cool vibe and very helpful and friendly staff. Glad we booked an accessible room as the standard King rooms were really small (although this is the norm for Manhattan).Once it was dark it didn't feel particularly safe - a lot of drunks and homeless along 38th."
