Brooklyn Heights Neighborhood Walk.
Photo Essay -- A Walk Around the Neighborhood
(You can also find this gallery in our Brooklyn post.)
I am still learning about Brooklyn--and there is so much to take in! One of my favorite things to do is to set out for an errand, or in one direction or another, and just walk. I find that I am able to explore different neighborhoods and get a feel for the differences between them. In mid-August, I had an appointment in the City on Monday afternoon, so I drove into Brooklyn Heights on Sunday and did two walking "tours." It was a hot, sunny day. In this first one, I focused on my own neighborhood in Brooklyn Heights. I covered the area from the Promenade above the East River down to Cobble Hill (Atlantic Avenue is the dividing line), across (east) to Clinton Street, up to Montague, west on Montague to Columbia Heights and back up to north Brooklyn Heights, just below the "Fruit Streets" (Really called that! Pineapple, Orange, Cranberry, south to north.) I also wandered around a little in the Hicks, Joralemon area. I will point that out below. Follow me.
