If you’re looking for a view, walk over the Brooklyn Bridge to end up on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade for a truly breathtaking view of lower Manhattan.
It’s the perfect Spring activity in NYC, and while in Brooklyn you can explore some great eateries and shopping in one of its most prominent neighborhoods. The main street for shopping and eating is Montague Street, which leads directly to the gorgeous promenade view.
Many famous people did (and still do) call Brooklyn Heights home, including John A. Roebling, civil engineer and designer of the Brooklyn Bridge. I can see why it’s so desirable. Like Park Slope, Brooklyn Heights boasts some beautiful townhomes and tree-lined streets, perfect for a Spring afternoon stroll.
Too tired to make the trek back to Manhattan on foot? The Borough Hall station is nearby with access to the R, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains.
