Brooklyn Heights provides the true feel of community with its wide stoop brownstone homes and tree lined blocks. When you step off the subway to be welcomed by a picturesque neighborhood where people really know each other, it is hard to believe that it’s only one stop from downtown Manhattan and right off the bustle of Downtown Brooklyn. One of its greatest attributes is the Promenade which is a scenic green space right on the East River Waterfront. Nothing compares to the view of the sun setting behind the Manhattan skyline. Brooklyn Heights is very often referred to as the borough’s Upper Eastside, and the neighborhoods affluence is reflected in the high end shops, bars, and restaurants.
