Relax on a bench to people watch, picnic or just take in the breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline. This exclusively pedestrian walkway is lined with grand historic townhouses and features a playground at Montague Street.

We spent an afternoon showing our friends this exceptional urban neighborhood. Wouldn't we all love to live here? Lots of important people have done so in glorious row houses and apartment buildings. Very spiffy and close to Manhattan.
Friends moved here so I came to dinner and stayed over. Such a charming neighborhood. Great and gracious old buildings- some historic- wonderful place to walk , especially the Promenade, a lovely walk along the river. Worth an Uber over from Manhattan.
Nice to wander around, pretty streets, impressive houses. There's not a whole lot going on and not a huge amount of atmosphere as it's a very wealthy area so there isn't much in the way of street life. Nice to walk down to the river...More
Winding down the beautiful tree lined avenues in Brooklyn Heights is an absolute delight.
It’s a great escape from the hustle of NY City.The houses are steeped in history, Arthur Miller lived here apparently amongst others.

Brooklyn Heights is a special location. The rich and famous was once located in this area close to the lower Manhattan. Elegant houses of times gone by. Many wonderful shops and restaurants located here. Clinton Street, Montague and Henry Streets to name a few. Towards...More
One of my favorite things to do is stroll along Willow St., Henry or Hicks Street, taking in the architectural detail of the historic brownstones, and admire the way the window boxes and landscaping change to reflect the seasons and holidays. You may even come...More

LCL, imagine 90 degrees angle. You are landing at the corner. Staying close to the water, walking towards the bridge, you would go to Brooklyn Park, Dumbo, and you would see carousel, view of Manhattan, and the photo shut place between the bridges.
Going the other way to the Promenade, on Columbia,
you would see the Statue of Liberty from a distance, end up on Montague Street to eat and see Brooklyn Brownstones and admire the architecture.
However, the corner itself is beautiful with a view of downtown Manhattan, famous ice cream, pricey but great River Cafe (can go for a drink at the bar), and Juliana's Pizza at 19 Old Fulton Street. There is also Grimaldi's famous pizza down the block. Grimaldi's has better ambiance but Juliana's better pizza, both good though.
Possibly, if you like to walk and have a full day, you can see
all parts of this angle. You would need to take a taxi from Montaque to under the Manhattan bridge and walk back towards Brooklyn Bridge. Brooklyn Bridge has a beautiful walkway to Manhattan with very picturesque views.

Hello ! I love to start my visit to Brooklyn Heights by starting at Court Street, and walking down Montague towards The Promenade. The shops and restaurants are my favorites, and after a few blocks you're in a more residential area, closer to the East River. I think most of the streets in this area have beautiful brownstones. On one trip my daughter-in-law took pictures of the houses, and we noticed how varied and gorgeous some of the doors were. (She is an interior designer. ) This area also seems to be a safe neighborhood. We were there in December, walking around right before dark, and no one bothered us at all. Have fun, and if you're there in the morning, enjoy breakfast at the Grand Canyon, also on Montague.
