Brooklyn Heights may be referred to as New York City’s first suburb, but it’s a far cry from typical suburbia. Just off the historic Brooklyn Bridge - the suspension bridge built between 1870 and 1883 that is today considered a modern industrial marvel - the community boasts historic Brooklyn Heights apartments and row houses along tree-lined streets, plenty of historic landmarks and entertainment options, but it doesn’t have an overbearing sense of commercialization. It’s a fantastic place to call home just a 10-minute subway trip from Tribeca and the Financial District, but with a lower cost of living and more space to stretch out and enjoy life across the East River.
The Brooklyn Heights Promenade is one of the most beloved spots for visiting tourists and Brooklyn Heights residents alike, thanks to its incredible views of Manhattan’s famous skyline and open park space. Much of the neighborhood and its landmarks are well-preserved and accurately restored, thanks to the work of the Brooklyn Historical Society, which also focuses on community involvement, volunteerism and outreach. And while there are many benefits of living among active, involved local residents, part of the benefit is in the area’s housing. Restored Brooklyn Heights apartments provide plenty of modern amenities and nearby transit options while staying true to the borough’s 300-year-old history, making it a modern-yet-classic place to call home.
It would be difficult to spend a day exploring all of Greater Brooklyn’s 17 neighborhoods, each of which has a different personality and vibe and collectively cover a combined 81 square miles; however, touring Brooklyn Heights in one day is completely do-able … you might even encounter a few of the neighborhood’s hidden gems along the way. Start the morning with coffee at Vineapple Cafe, which always feel cozy and productive with its low-key lighting and exposed brick walls; take a late morning stroll with your furry friend through the Promenade, soaking up the sights and sounds of Manhattan across the East River; do some window shopping and stop for lunch along Montague Street, one of the few commercial corners of the neighborhood with a smattering of quirky shops and cafes near Brooklyn Heights apartments and brownstones; then end the evening with dinner and drinks at a well-known restaurant like Henry’s End, Noodle Pudding or Colonie, all of which serve up award-winning dishes and ambiance to locals and visiting foodies alike.
Getting to other Brooklyn neighborhoods or across the river to Manhattan is easy, thanks to the New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s more than 350 bus, train and subway routes. A commute that may take nearly an hour by car (not counting the added time and expense of parking) can take less than 10 minutes on the subway. Long walks from the parking garage to the office can practically be eliminated with bus stops located on nearly every city block and major intersection, just steps away from most Brooklyn Heights apartments. Explore all the convenience Brooklyn and the Heights have to offer, just outside Manhattan’s crowded confines!
