Brooklyn Real Estate Information
Brooklyn Heights Real Estate

Bordered by Atlantic Avenue to the south, Cadman Park and Court Street to the east, Brooklyn Heights commands a spectacular view of lower Manhattan. History abounds at every turn. It was here that George Washington slipped his troops across the East River while the English slept. Columbia Heights was the residence of the Roebling family while they constructed the Brooklyn Bridge. A casual stroll in the proximity of the Heights Promenade will turn up quaint two story carriage houses as well as wood frame residences dating from the 19th century.
The Heights has never really been an outer-borough neighborhood. But since the Court Street and Atlantic Avenue commercial nexus went from urban no-man’s-land to mini-mall (replete with deep-pocketed chains like Barnes & Noble, Ben & Jerry's, CVS, and a Regal multiplex), families are even less inclined to move away from the neighborhood. While most are thrilled with the commercial facelift, skyrocketing rents have edged out a few neighborhood institutions — like Peter's Ice Cream, which closed last year after a 77 percent rent increase. Farther down in Cobble Hill, old men still keep watch from their lawn chairs over a vibrant mix of fish stores, butchers, bakeries, and delis. Still, scarcity of product has fed the sellers' market, and prices are approaching uptown Manhattan levels.

Atlantic Avenue boasts Mideastern delights galore while Montague Street is where the young at heart can be found at all hours. Brooklyn's Borough Hall is located just off Court Street, so named because of the Federal, City and State Courts nearby. For those who commute to the city, Brooklyn Heights is a mere ten minute subway ride to Manhattan.
