Brooklyn Heights

has long been considered one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, both for its short commute to Manhattan and for its quiet, friendly atmosphere.  Declared a historic district in 1965, it stretches from the East River to Cadman Plaza and Court Street, bordered by Old Fulton Street to the north and Atlantic Avenue to the south.

This neighborhood has tree-lined streets, cobblestone paths, and architecturally stunning brownstones in abundance.  Adding to its beauty, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade stretches along the East River waterfront and offers spectacular views of the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges.  

Aside from its picturesque quality, Brooklyn Heights Real Estate also possesses a more practical advantage.  The centrally located Borough Hall subway station is served by the 2/3 and 4/5 trains, and the A/C/F and N/R lines are not far away.  Either by subway or by car, the commute into Manhattan is short and sweet.

Restaurants are plentiful and diverse along Montague Street, a main thoroughfare, but the famous Grimaldi’s Pizza, close to the Brooklyn Bridge, is also a delicious option.  A green market resides part-time at Borough Hall, and nearby Cadman Park is a perfect setting for a family picnic.

An opportunity just waiting to be taken advantage of is the ever-growing Brooklyn Bridge Park, which began to emerge on the waterfront in early 2010.  Thus far the Park includes such attractions as playgrounds and greenways, bike paths, dog runs, and novelties like the Spiral Pool.  The Park will ultimately encompass 85 acres and span 1.3 miles, and will offer a wide range of activities from running and biking to kayaking and canoeing.

Living in Brooklyn: Brooklyn Heights

Brooklyn Heights is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Brooklyn NY real estate, dating back to a time before subways, buses or even railroads.

Once upon a time, Manhattan didn't exist above 14th Street, and ferry boats traversed the East River. New York's wealthiest citizens wanted more space, but still needed easy access to the City.

Just across the river, Brooklyn Heights beckoned…and the first commuter town was born.
