I lived in Brooklyn Heights for several decades, and it was always and is still one of the most charming of NYC´s historic neighborhoods. There are many, many beautiful old brownstones and mansions in top form, and Montague Street, although far more commercial than in past decades, still has it charm, a great bookstore, and a few decent restaurants. And one would be remiss to visit NY and not walk the Brooklyn Height Promenade with its uniquely dramatic view of the lower Manhattan skyline, the harbor, the East River and the magnificent Brooklyn Bridge. Serious walkers should (must!) walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, a totally awesome half hour walk -- whose entrance is in northern Brooklyn Heights. You will arrive in the city hall area of Manhattan with the Woolworth building (explore the amazing lobby), the Municipal Building, City Hall and the courts. Behind the courts is Chinatown -- with lots of eating options there needless to stay. This tour -- starting in Brookllyn Heights and ending in Chinatown -- is one I have done hundreds of times with friends, always to their delight and my own.
