Brooklyn Heights Apartments

Brooklyn Heights apartments are among the most sought-after homes in the so-called outer boroughs (aka, everywhere but Manhattan)... and, thus, are also among the most expensive.


One walk through the neighborhood and it's easy to see why: Brooklyn Heights is essentially block after block of beautiful old row houses and mansions--the entire community is an officially-designated historic district--all leading down to the stunning views along the Brooklyn Heights Promenade


Bordered on the north by Old Fulton Street and the Brooklyn Bridge (and the neighborhood of DUMBO), to the south by Atlantic Avenue (and Cobble Hill), to the west by the river, and to the east by Court Street and Cadman Plaza (and Downtown Brooklyn), the neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights is not only short distance away from many favorite Brooklyn destinations, but the subway will get you to Downtown and Midtown Manhattan in a matter of minutes.


Brooklyn Heights History

NY apartments in Brooklyn Heights come in a wide variety of architectural styles, including early 19th-century Federal-style houses, brick Greek Revival and Gothic Revival buildings, and Italianate brownstones. The community has a history to it beyond its lovely buildings: George Washington retreated to this fortified area with his Continental Army during the Battle of Brooklyn (also called the Battle of Long Island), the largest battle of the Revolutionary War, and was able to hold off the overwhelming British forces long enough to secrete his army across the river and to the relative safety of Manhattan.


A Charming Life in Brooklyn Heights

And as if Brooklyn Heights residents didn't already enjoy enough picturesque settings in their neighborhood, they are about to get even more fortunate with the opening of the newly expanded Brooklyn Bridge Park, which will feature a big sunny lawn, pathways for biking and running, and a terrific wide wooden "viewing platform"--essentially a huge stairway to nowhere.


Although no one would mistake Brooklyn Heights for a shopper's or eater's paradise, the main commercial strip of Montague Street has its share of perfectly fine cafes and quick-bite spots, including a Five Guys burger joint, and there are several popular sushi places nearby, and Jack the Horse Tavern on Hicks Street is always a solid option. Right-next-door, DUMBO has several good restaurants, as well as lots of cool art galleries, designy-houseware shops, and St. Anns Warehouse, which puts on some of the most interresting theatrical and musical performances in all of New York City.
