Brooklyn Heights was New York City's first suburb. It overlooks lower Manhattan and can be reached by boat as well as bus, train or best of all by walking across the Brooklyn Bridge. It is the first stop in Brooklyn of south bound #2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, M, and R trians. The narrow streets are lined with Victorian Era brownstone townhouses that are decorated with wrought iron. These lovely buidings have been preserved to serve as both residential and business spaces for a variety of restaurants, unique shops, and elegant galleries.
