Time Out New York has a piece about the Heights as part of its “Own This City” series of neighborhood guides. Its summary is:
Brooklyn Heights is a peculiar piece of real estate among the five boroughs: a quiet, clean suburb with tree-lined streets and a wide-screen view of FiDi. Thanks to the perfectly preserved brownstones and soft sunlight, it feels a bit like the neighborhood time forgot.
Time Out then quotes several neighborhood residents and business owners concerning what they like best about the Heights. One of those quoted is BHB founder and publisher John “Homer Fink” Loscalzo, who recommends getting a haircut and a history lesson from Tom or Rocky at The Cutting Den in the Clark Street Station arcade. He also recommends playing bocce at Floyd NY, on Atlantic between Clinton and Henry, and taking friends, or just oneself, for a stroll on Pier 1 in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Update: Martina Parker, wife of BHB contributor Matthew Parker, is also quoted: “The architecture is beautiful and it feels, especially in the wintertime at night, like you’re stepping into the 19th or early-20th century.”
