brooklyn heights

Settled in the late 1600s and traversed by illustrious personages such as George Washington and literary figures like Walt Whitman and Norman Mailer, Brooklyn Heights is New York's first historic district. With unforgettable views of Manhattan across the East River from the famous Promenade, tree-lined streets and elegant brownstones, the enclave's Old New York charm melds with contemporary vibrancy. Trendsetting restaurants and shops abound, and residents enjoy the new waterfront parks just steps from Dumbo's design hub, not to mention close proximity
to Manhattan from the area's many subway lines.
