Where can you get the best view of Manhattan? When you visit New York City, you simply must take the time to visit the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Whether you are in Brooklyn morning, noon or night, the Promenade offers amazing views of Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge and even the Statue of Liberty.
Visiting Brooklyn Heights Promenade
On our recent visit to New York City, Natalie and I took the subway over to Brooklyn for a conference at the Brooklyn Historic Society. Since we were just a few blocks away, we knew we had to spend some time down at the Brooklyn Heights Promenade.

We spent some time at the Brooklyn Height Promenade three different times, and each visit was a little different.
Just a few blocks down from the Brooklyn Promenade on Montague Street is a great place to stop for ice cream. Emack & Bolio’s is located at 115 Montague Street, and offers tasty treats and a cozy place to enjoy your desserts.
The Brooklyn Heights area is a great place to get a little more relaxed and away from the crowd and energy of Manhattan. Take some time to walk a few blocks and really appreciate the architecture and beauty of the Brooklyn Brownstones.
The Historic Society is a beautiful venue with a rich history. If you get to visit the Brooklyn Historical Society, make sure you take the time to go upstairs and visit the research library.
