About Brooklyn Heights
Located close to Wall Street but with the East River as a buffer, Brooklyn Heights is a sought after neighborhood for those who want convenience along with some more open space. The neighborhood is just south of the Brooklyn Bridge, with I-278 cutting right across it. Atlantic Avenue and Cadman Plaza/Court Street are the southern and eastern borders, respectively. In terms of public transit, there are many options that can take you to various points in the city. The 2/3 and A/C lines goes through Borough Hall, and the R, 4/5, and F train have close stops as well. Some of the New York ferries make stops at Pier 6 and/or Pier 1, and this might be a good option if one's workplace is right by the ferry stop across the water.
Main attractions in Brooklyn Heights are the Promenade and Greenway Terrace. There are always people walking and jogging along the waterfront, with Brooklyn Bridge Park meandering up the river towards the iconic bridge. Because of the proximity to Manhattan, many visitors come to this area to take photographs of the bridge and city skyline. Some of the piers, like Pier 2 and Pier 5, have been turned into public parks, with fields, picnic tables, and other amenities.
There are several government offices located in or close to Brooklyn Heights, bringing commuters in each day. That means there are plenty of spots to get a quick bite or sit down for a nice meal. Several eateries are located on Atlantic, with many others on Court and Montague. The northern side of the neighborhood has some quieter places, including bars and cafes on Henry Street. The tree-lined streets are nice and idyllic to take strolls in, whether with four-legged friends, kids, or on your own. For more entertainment, there's a large movie theater on Court Street and some night life on the southern part of the neighborhood.
