A delightful area with many old historic framehouses and brownstones. A haunt for writers, you may find plaques showing where Walt Whitman, Arthur Miller and Norman Mailer (among others ) lived.

I am really glad I did walk to this area. Felt very private and was just calm, green and very quiet and nice. And still close to Manhatten. Just gives you a totally different feel and you can find some nice spots to relax.

The quiet, elegant, brownstone-lined streets in Brooklyn Heights must be wonderful places to live. If you're interested in American literature, it's especially intriguing to walk the streets that inspired Henry Miller, Arthur Miller, Hart Crane, Truman Capote, Auden, Thomas Wolfe, Walt Whitman and so many...More

There are so many things to love about Brooklyn Heights, not the least of which are the brownstones and the views across the river into Manhattan. Expensive to live in but cheap to enjoy.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat. We travelled into NYC easily and yet were able to retreat to a pretty, residential area when we wanted some respite from the bustle.

Any suggestions please for the best way to take in the promenade, brownstones (which roads are the best?) and brooklyn bridge park- and how long to allow- We will be getting off the ny taxi boat at pier 1. I'm not sure whether to walk up the promenade towards the bridge or down it towards statue of liberty view. Or walk along the 'bridge park' and get onto the promenade from there?? How do you get onto the promenade? Also whats the name of the street with the view of the manhattan bridge at the end of it? Lots of photos are taken from this street of the bridge....

Wow the pics look amazing. I am in NYC in May and was gonna ask which are the best streets to wonder to see the lovely Brownstone and Wood Houses. I could research and make a plan if I have a few names for the streets. Thank you so much for taking the time. I can't wait :)
