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.

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.
