Welcome to Brooklyn Heights
An architecturally unique residential area with small town charm, Brooklyn Heights was the first neighborhood in New York City to be designated a Historic District. Over the years, Walt Whitman, Henry Ward Beecher, Henry Miller, Truman Capote, and Norman Mailer have all called the Heights home.
Today, Brooklyn Heights is distinguished by a superb collection of National Historic Landmark churches and nineteenth-century brownstones. Significant New York City landmarks, such as the Brooklyn Historical Society and Brooklyn Borough Hall are located here, and tourists and locals alike flock to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, with its inspiring views of the Brooklyn Bridge, Lower Manhattan, and beyond.
