Brooklyn Heights

Historic and Elegant Architecture
If you are looking for the convenience of city life without the crowds, noise, and dirtiness, Brooklyn Heights is the perfect place. This cozy neighborhood is right outside Manhattan - one of the firsts across the Brooklyn Bridge. The posh and residential area offers dive bars, music venues, innovative restaurants, and a majestic and panoramic view of Lower Manhattan from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. The Brooklyn Heights Society, Heights Players, Brooklyn Arts Galleries, and New York Transit Museum are all energetic cultural institutions with rich histories. One of the biggest perks of Brooklyn Heights is its accessible public transit. Midtown and downtown Brooklyn are an easy subway away!

Brooklyn Heights' elegant brownstones and restored row homes along its tree-lined, cobblestone streets give it its fine reputation. From Gothic Revival buildings to 19th century American mansions, the architecture is truly brilliant. Its tranquility and scenery make Brooklyn Heights an ideal neighborhood for professionals and families to settle down in.

Brooklyn Heights — 8/10 Rating (based on 3 neighborhood reviews)
Brooklyn Heights is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Brooklyn. There are a lot of brownstones with families, and it tends to be expensive, but great deals on individual apartments do exist if you hold out for them for a few weeks. The Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and the Brooklyn Heights Promenade are all in the neighborhood.

There are 7 subway lines in or near the neighborhood, and it's only one subway stop away from Manhattan in most instances. It's not where people party on the weekends, but there are still plenty of places to eat and hang out if you're in the mood for a chill night. It's the kind of place you live if you want to go out elsewhere and come back home at the end of the night to your cute, quiet neighborhood.

The commute to Stern is about 30 minutes via subway--not bad, but if you're willing to pay more money for a smaller apartment, you probably want to look in Manhattan.
