Walking in NYC (Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn)

Ok so this past week, I decided to do another NYC photo tour. The day was such a beautiful and clear day. So I decided to give Brooklyn a visit and took a bunch of photos of one of the most beautiful and expensive neighborhoods in NYC. This is Brooklyn Heights. A nighborhood that seems to be stuck in time. New construction is rarely allowed and it has to comply with complicated zonings. Anyway I am glad, because like the West Village, this is one of NYC most charming low scale neighborhoods. Ok I hope you enjoy my photo tour.


Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn

Brooklyn Heights is a neighborhood within the New York City borough of Brooklyn; originally designated through popular reference as 'Brooklyn Village', it has, since 1834, become a prevalent area of the Brooklyn borough. As of 2000, the Brooklyn Heights sustained a population of 22,493 people. The neighborhood is part of Brooklyn Community Board 2.

Brooklyn Heights stretches from Fulton Street near the Brooklyn Bridge south to Atlantic Avenue and from the East River east to Court Street and Cadman Plaza. Adjacent neighborhoods are : DUMBO, Downtown Brooklyn, Cobble Hill and Boerum Hill. It is the part of Brooklyn closest to Lower Manhattan, directly across the East River, and easily accessible via the Downtown and multiple subway lines.

When I visisted there, they told me that is actually the oldest side of New York's history, there are buildings that have remained there since long time ago that they cannot even be found in Manhattan anymore. I think it is the most interesting part of New York City out of Manhattan.

^ Yes there are some older buildings that are not found in Manhattan. It is such a beautiful area to walk around. Brooklyn Hieghts feels very calm and quiet, since it doesn't have too much car traffic on most of its streets. I am glad you visited.

It's not the oldest part of NYC as there are lots of old places in NYC. Actually the preservation level of this city is so high (fortunately) that you will find old quarters all around the place. Greenwich Village comes to mind, Staten Island is full of them, Richmond town restoration for instance, the Flatlands in Brooklyn, the very Harlem is a well preserved area; and of course The Brooklyn Heights, actually there are as many old 17th, 18th or 19th century buildings as in any European city, believe me.

BTW Krull as always, you did a great job capturing the spirit of this part of the city (personally one of my favorites).

Thank you man.

Yes it is. Once you walk the bridge to Brooklyn you will be in Downtown Brooklyn. Then what you do is turn to the right and then walk all the way to Brooklyn Heights. A short walk.
