Brooklyn Heights

Its boundaries are often described as running from Atlantic Avenue to Tillary Street and the BQE at Furman Street to Old Fulton Street at Cadman Plaza. One of New York's first communities to be designated a landmark district, there are about 684 houses predating the Civil War.

As peaceful as it is beautiful, Brooklyn Heights' narrow tree-lined streets are framed by 19th century, mostly Federal, Gothic Revival, Anglo-Italianate or Greek Revival-style, brownstones, brick houses and elegant apartment buildings.

This neighborhood is close to Brooklyn Bridge Park, the first major park to be built in Brooklyn since Prospect Park. The park features extraordinary playgrounds including Swing Valley with long rope swings, a water play area and a slide mountain with two-story slides, a dog run, a pool and the stunning Jane's Carousel designed by renowned architect Jean Nouvel.

Fun facts: Much of the 1987 film "Moonstruck" for which Cher won an Oscar was shoot on Cranberry Street; Walt Whitman wrote "Leaves of Grass" at his Brooklyn Heights home; abolitionist Henry Ward Beecher (Harriet's brother) railed against slavery at the Plymouth Church of the Pilgrims on Orange Street and among many neighborhood addresses of Norman Mailer, one was 102 Pierrepont Street and where he wrote the initial stages of "The Naked and the Dead" after WWII; Truman Compote lived in a basement apartment for 10 years at 70 Willow Street, where he finished "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "In Cold Blood."

Housing Stock: 19th century mansions, pre-war apartment houses, carriage houses along several mews, single and multi-family brownstones new condos and converted warehouses.
