Historic Brooklyn Heights Walking Tour
On this 2-hour walking tour of Brooklyn Heights, we will explore one of the most exclusive and picturesque neighborhoods in all of New York City. From its early roots as a ferry stop between the suburbs of Long Island and the hustle-bustle of Manhattan to its heights as one of the most coveted of Victorian neighborhoods, Brooklyn Heights continues to enchant residents and visitors alike with its charming brownstones and pastoral wooden houses, with over 600 dating back to before the Civil War.

As we stroll through this tree-lined district, your guide will share the tales of the fascinating cast of characters who once called Brooklyn Heights home, among them Truman Capote, Arthur Miller, and Anais Nin. Visit the sites that make this one of New York's most desirable neighborhoods. Explore the rich history of this community, including its connections to the American Revolution, the Underground Railroad, the building of the Brooklyn Bridge, and the juxtaposition of the urban progress and historic preservation.

Encounter the places that may look familiar from the silver or small screen. View the homes where Breakfast at Tiffany's and The Crucible were written. Visit the sites of 19th century mock slave auctions and several stops on the Underground Railroad. Walk in the footsteps of some of pop culture's most famous figures. Witness an important turning point in the early days of the Revolution!

History, architecture, literature, photography, pop-culture, the occult- Historic Brooklyn Heights has something for everyone!

Stops on this tour include:
Hotel St. George
The Brooklyn Promenade
Plymouth Church
"The Jewel of Brooklyn Heights"
Homes of Truman Capote and Arthur Miller
Grace Court Alley
...and much more!
