A delightful area with many old historic framehouses and brownstones. A haunt for writers, you may find plaques showing where Walt Whitman, Arthur Miller and Norman Mailer (among others ) lived.

I am really glad I did walk to this area. Felt very private and was just calm, green and very quiet and nice. And still close to Manhatten. Just gives you a totally different feel and you can find some nice spots to relax.

The quiet, elegant, brownstone-lined streets in Brooklyn Heights must be wonderful places to live. If you're interested in American literature, it's especially intriguing to walk the streets that inspired Henry Miller, Arthur Miller, Hart Crane, Truman Capote, Auden, Thomas Wolfe, Walt Whitman and so many more. Look at a "literary Brooklyn" site before you visit, or get a hold of... More

There are so many things to love about Brooklyn Heights, not the least of which are the brownstones and the views across the river into Manhattan. Expensive to live in but cheap to enjoy.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat. We travelled into NYC easily and yet were able to retreat to a pretty, residential area when we wanted some respite from the bustle.

91 Remsen, where he lived with his wife June in the 1920's--(Henry and June--that June) is a great starting point. Montague Street has the cool shopping, little restaurants, great place for a leisurely hangout if you walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Punch in 91 Remsen and you'll be right where you want to be.

If you enjoy old style brownstones, this is for you. Please remember to bring you camera to take plenty of pictures, and remember to wear comfortable shoes. Plenty of places to eat along the way.
