Brooklyn Heights

Brooklyn Heights is one of Brooklyn’s oldest and most beautiful neighborhoods. Numerous celebrities have settled in this charming area, which boasts rows of quaint townhouses, brownstones, and neo-gothic homes. The neighborhood is among New York City’s most desirable, and one of its most expensive. Residents pay for the handsome architecture, quiet tree-lined streets, and excellent nearby schools. Brooklyn Heights was the first neighborhood to be protected by the 1965 Landmarking Protection Law, and is thus one of the cleanest and most immaculately maintained neighborhoods in New York City.
