Brooklyn Heights

Bringing elegance to Brooklyn

Brooklyn Heights is a brownstone lover’s paradise. This more tranquil section of the borough is known for its tree-lined streets, 19th-century architecture, and small-town charm. The neighborhood is home to Brooklyn Bridge Park, an iconic waterfront promenade that attracts visitors from around the world with its panoramic views of Lower Manhattan. With premium transit options, it’s easy to understand why this neighborhood has been a draw in recent years for new community- and family-oriented retail concepts nestled inside premium developments like the Quay Tower. 

Although one of the smaller neighborhoods in the borough, Brooklyn Heights is also one of the most picturesque, with its pre-Civil War homes and a gorgeous array of churches, townhomes, and buildings in a variety of architectural styles. Montague Street serves as the main retail corridor and is lined with mom-and-pop shops, large New York chains, spots to grab a bite, live theaters, and music venues.
