A Celebrated Location

Known as Brooklyn Village in its early days, the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood has been a destination in Brooklyn since the mid-nineteenth century. Brooklyn Heights has retained its early low-rise architecture, including many brownstone row houses built prior to the Civil War.

Notable civic buildings include churches, galleries, and schools. With the completion of the Brooklyn Bridge in 1883, Brooklyn Heights became more accessible. The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1966.

Today Brooklyn – and Brooklyn Heights in particular – is known for its hip destinations, historic structures, and notable residents. It is a neighborhood that will reward wandering and slow exploration along tree-lined streets.
