Is Brooklyn Heights Walkable? You Bet!

I decided to take my own advice as well as test the theory L Magazine proposed, as reported here by Chuck Taylor. I had an errand to run at the Greenmarket, but I decided to go there, with camera, by a circuitous route, down the Promenade and Squibb Hill to Pier 1, Brooklyn Bridge Park, then up the hill to Middagh Street, then to Cadman Plaza Park, across to the Greenmarket, then back by way of Remsen Street. The flowering cherry tree in the photo is at the north end of the Promenade. More photos follow the jump.

    Very nice photos. It would be great if BHB had a way to enlarge these when you click on them. But still a nice snapshot of the neighborhood in spring.

    On a related note: I keep thinking how much the trees and flowers could use some rain now. I went out this morning and watered those in front of my building. Would encourage others to do the same.

    I see these pictures and I’m reminded of how lucky we are to live here!

    The photos are beautiful! Is there any season more revitalizing than Spring?
    Msgr. Root’s displays at OLOLC rectory are always elegant and welcoming….as is the interior of the Cathedral.
    Sunday, May 20, from1-4 p.m. it is participating in the NYLandmarks Conservancy’s ” Sacred Sites” tour. An excellent opportunity to visit, have a guided tour and learn about the historical significance of the edifice.
    It is one of Brooklyn Heights’ treasures!

    Took a similar walk, except that we went to the Greenmarket first, then down Fulton Street to Brooklyn Bridge Park. After stopping for an ice cream at the Factory, we continued along the Brooklyn Bridge Park Walkway to Joralemon Street, up that hill and back along Hicks Street. Brooklyn Heights in the spring is amazing.

    The “cherry” tree in the northern strip of Cadman Plaza Park next to the Brooklyn Bridge off-ramp looks more like an Eastern Redbud (stem-less blossoms growing from branches and twigs) than a Japanese cherry.
