Brooklyn Heights

Located just outside of Manhattan, right across the Brooklyn Bridge, is the affluent neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights. It has a suburban feel that is worlds away from the frenetic energy of Manhattan. With elegant brownstones, leafy sidewalks, and a scenic promenade, it is one of the most desirable places to live in New York City.

Brooklyn Heights is bounded by Cadman Plaza West and the East River from east to west and the Brooklyn Bridge Promenade and Atlantic Avenue from north to south. It is surrounded by the neighborhoods of Cobble Hill, Dumbo, and Downtown Brooklyn. The neighborhood is easily accessible from Atlantic Terminal, Grand Central, Union Square, and Wall Street.

The housing market offers a fine selection of historic brownstones with Gothic Revival architecture as well as 19th century grand mansions. Homes in the area can easily command up to seven or eight figures. Buyers and renters are willing to pay a premium for space in this neighborhood.

The neighborhood harbors a wealth of apartment buildings that have been restored and converted from single-family homes and row houses. Some of these apartment buildings have outdoor spaces like courtyards and gardens.

Previously called Brooklyn Village, the neighborhood sports bluff-side waterfront placement along the East River. It is home to reputable public and private schools, including Brooklyn Friends School, A Fantis Parochial School, Brooklyn Heights Montessori School, Fusion Academy Brooklyn, Saint Ann’s School, and Packer Collegiate Institute.

Local attractions include Brooklyn Bridge Park, where visitors will find Jane’s Carousel, ferry rides, and piers offering views of the water. Other highlights include Brooklyn Heights Promenade and Pier 5, which command breathtaking views of Lower Manhattan. Residents have easy access to Downtown Brooklyn and the trendy shops, bars, and restaurants along Montague Avenue and Hicks Street. Nearby cultural venues include the New York Transit Museum and Brooklyn Historical Society.
