Default Brooklyn Heights........

would people say that it is a good neighborhood? I've heard that Sesame Street was based off of the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood too. What kind of neighborhood is it?

It's a very nice area - spectacular view of Manhattan. Where "Moonstruck" was filmed.

It's like the West Village, only more spectacular and laid-back. But it's the most expensive neighborhood in Brooklyn. When moving to Brooklyn wasn't fashionable yet, Brooklyn Heights held its own against Manhattan neighborhoods.

Most of Brooklyn Heights is also an officially designated historic district. You can wander around the area and see just what it looked like in the 1830s! (And the harbor view from the Promenade is flat out unequalled).

Is it a "diverse" neighborhood ethnically? I notice that St. Francis and LIU-Brooklyn are in the area, according to maps.

I went to St Francis College, which was a diverse school. the LIU campus is close by but a bit further off (its by Juniors). As far as the neighborhood itself, not too sure.

Brooklyn Heights is a fantastic neighborhood. It is the oldest neighborhood in Brooklyn. Also it was one of the most established neighborhoods in Brooklyn during the early 1900's. Take a walk on Montague street and it will give you the feel of a street in Paris.

Was just there yesterday strolling thru the shops and grabbing a bite. Has a nice character all its own. Yes it's diverse and has close proximity to Park Slope, downtown Brooklyn, Supreme court. Oh, the Patty Duke Show was based out of Brooklyn Heights. Remember that? You have to watch re-runs.
