  • New York Habitat Video

  • with David Hill

  • Brooklyn Heights - Part 2, Brooklyn, New York

  • This is the second of our two-part series

  • on this fantastic neighborhood in Brooklyn.

  • If you haven't yet watched the first part,

  • you can find it on our YouTube channel.

  • Brooklyn Heights is located across the Brooklyn Bridge

  • from Lower Manhattan.

  • It's bordered by the East River on the west,

  • the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway to the north,

  • Cadman Plaza and Court Street to the east,

  • and Atlantic Avenue to the south.

  • This is Montague Street,

  • it's the neighborhood's main drag

  • and it's lined with cafes and shops.

  • Many of the buildings

  • have beautiful architectural details,

  • like wrought iron railings.

  • The church of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity,

  • at the corner of Clinton Street,

  • is a national historic landmark dating back to 1844

  • and is known for its elaborate stained glass windows.

  • Brooklyn used to be called the "city of churches",

  • so you'll see a lot of spires in the neighborhood.

  • Another architectural hotspot

  • can be found at 177 Montague St.,

  • where you'll find the Chase Bank building.

  • Built in 1917 and designed to look like

  • an Italian Renaissance palace,

  • it's considered by many to be

  • the grandest bank in New York.

  • Part of what makes Brooklyn Heights so attractive

  • is its varied architecture,

  • including its alleys and its mews like this one,

  • Grace Court Alley.

  • It is one of the few streets in New York

  • almost entirely made up of carriage houses,

  • and offers a glimpse of what the city was like before cars.

  • Its stables were turned into residences 100 years ago,

  • it's now a quiet and almost traffic-free area.

  • It's a great place for a kid to learn to ride bike in Brooklyn.

  • This busy artery is Atlantic Avenue,

  • which divides Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill.

  • You'll find everything you need here,

  • from meat pies to craft beers,

  • locally-made jewelry and used books.

  • Be sure to visit the 60-year-old Sahadi's,

  • a wonderful Middle Eastern bazaar

  • chock full of spices, nuts, olives,

  • and delicious homemade hummus.

  • Just be prepared to wait

  • because on Saturday afternoons

  • it seems like the entire neighborhood

  • of Brooklyn Heights shops right here.

  • And speaking of the neighborhood,

  • the best way to be part of it

  • is to live like a local

  • by renting a furnished apartment

  • or vacation rental

  • from New York Habitat

  • for your next trip to New York.

  • You'll find some fun shopping

  • on Atlantic Avenue and Henry Street,

  • but for the best shopping

  • go to the nearby Cobble Hill

  • on Smith Street and Court Street.

  • You have Housing Works Thrift Shop

  • on Montague Street,

  • Tango also on Montague Street,

  • Atlantic Bookshop on Atlantic Avenue,

  • Barney's Co-Op on Atlantic Avenue,

  • Teddy on Court Street,

  • and Lily on Court Street as well.

  • Brooklyn Heights is a quiet neighborhood,

  • but on Henry Street and Atlantic Avenue

  • which is where we are now,

  • you'll find a fun mix of excellent bars

  • and restaurants:

  • You've got Henry's End on Henry Street,

  • Henry Public also on Henry Street,

  • Chipshop on Atlantic Avenue,

  • Tazza on Henry Street,

  • and Iris Café on Columbia Place.
