Things to Do and Places to See in Brooklyn Heights

Brooklyn Heights is one of New York City’s most sought-after neighborhoods. The neighborhood’s roughly one-third square mile of surface area is lined with beautiful brownstones. While Brooklyn Heights is home to fewer bars, restaurants, and businesses than the rest of Brooklyn, you’re likely to be delighted when you discover these must-see attractions in the neighborhood.

Check Out Montague Street

Montague Street is the lively center for Brooklyn Heights. The four-block street is packed with businesses. The first block after Clinton Street features over a half-dozen spas, massage therapists, and other esthetician services.

The next block features fine jewelers and one of the best Thai restaurants and bars in Brooklyn at Lantern Thai, which offers authentic Thai food via takeout, no-contact delivery, and dine-in.

Up the street is Brooklyn Cat Cafe, a feline-friendly eatery run by the Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition. Here, you can grab coffee or tea and choose from a range of freshly made snacks.

Enjoy Gothic Revival Architecture

At Montague and Clinton, the first thing you’ll notice is St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church. The massive, 275-foot-tall church is adorned with dozens of stained glass windows depicting figures and events from the New Testament.

This National Historic Landmark regularly hosts community events such as live storytelling and the annual Brooklyn Folk Festival.

Catch a Concert by the Brooklyn Chamber Orchestra

St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church is also home to the Brooklyn Chamber Orchestra, an 18-person group that typically performs at least every month. In addition, the orchestra occasionally hosts world-renowned guest musicians, even commissioning brand-new musical works to be premiered here in Brooklyn Heights.

Right next to the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Kensington and Ditmas Park, The Vitagraph luxury apartment rentals offer easy access to the eateries and attractions mentioned above. Choose from one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, all of which feature oversized layouts with plenty of unobstructed natural light.
