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.

What a lovely quaint & beautiful neighbourhood! Serene near the city. Did not expect such a scene in a city like this. Now I know why people stay here. Just a trot away from the promenade with lovely cafe's & restaurants close by as well....More
I WOULDN’T GO TO BROOKLYN WITH THE SOUL AIM OF CHECKING BROOKLYN HEIGHTS….BUT….
….incorporated into a BROOKLYN WATERSIDE TOUR, it makes a good little section.
“LITTLE” above is no hyperbole – this is a compact area. To the south of the BROOKLYN BRIDGE APPROACHES we...More
I live here so I'm biased but honestly I love walking around at night listening to music or catching up with friends over the phone. Its so peaceful and picturesque. If you visit NYC and want to get away from the bustle, come for a...More
I really enjoyed our walk with our guide Onel .
Onel was very informative about the construction and history of the Brooklyn bridge and was justly proud of it as a Brookynite himself He showed us the Brooklyn Heights area pointing out the history and...More
One of the first neighborhoods outside of Manhattan you’ll hit after crossing the Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Heights offers a cozy residential area. There are few fabulous places in walking distances such as New York Transit Museum, Brooklyn Heights Promenade,where you could see view, Lower Manhattan...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.
