Our own Rachel (you can meet her at the front desk!) here shares with us some beautiful photos from Brooklyn Heights. Brooklyn Heights is perhaps the most expensive neighborhood to live in in all of the outer boroughs (Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, Staten Island) and is a very historic district. The neighborhood boasts countless townhouses and mansions, and is very popular for its location. (It’s a mere five-minute subway ride to the Financial District in Manhattan, and is under a twenty-minute ride to Times Square.) A little know fact: the Huxtable family from the Cosby Show lived in Brooklyn Heights!
Here’s a popular, well, cafe (self-explanatory, yes)! Located on 84 Montague St (between Pierrepont Pl & Hicks St), it is right by the East River that separates Manhattan and Brooklyn. They offer great outdoor seating during the warm weathers as well.
Brooklyn Heights, as of 2011, has over 2100 TREES! This is a typical tree-lined street.
Here’s a beautiful view of Lower Manhattan/Financial District from the famous Brooklyn Heights Promenade! Looks at how close we are to Manhattan. (Yes, those are Rachel’s hands.)
Sunset from The Promenade!
You can see the Brooklyn Bridge and Lower Manhattan.
