Tree-lined sidewalks, cobblestone side streets, and a thriving mix of shops, businesses and amenities make it clear why America’s first suburb, Brooklyn Heights, is one of the most sought after places to live, work and play in New York City.

Named one of “America’s Top 10 Most Beautiful Neighborhoods” by Travel and Leisure magazine, Brooklyn Heights was the first neighborhood in New York City to be designated a Historic District and the first neighborhood in Brooklyn to be landmarked.

From nineteenth-century brownstones and single-family mansions to Federal brick homes, and carriage houses, beauty and historic architecture fills the neighborhood.

Locals and tourists alike flock to Brooklyn Heights for its small-town feel, unparalleled views of New York Harbor, the Brooklyn Bridge, and Downtown Manhattan.

Our neighborhood has been the site of Revolutionary War battles, abolitionist activism, and has a superb collection of National Historic Landmark Houses of Worship.

A hot spot for the entertainment industry, Brooklyn Heights has been the setting for the filming of countless shows, movies and commercials and a favorite photo shoot location for the fashion industry.

Over the years, Walt Whitman, Henry Ward Beecher, Henry Miller, Truman Capote, Norman Mailer, Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway, Lena Dunham, Matt Damon and many celebrities have all called the Heights home.
