As the sun set westward, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade boasted a full house of spectators, taking in the beauty of a perfect summer day. More below the jump. (Photos: Chuck Taylor)

brooklyn heights promenade, summer, sunset
This is the Promenade at its best with a tame crowd of neighbors at sunset other times its not no nice crowds of unruly people with lage bottles of Colt 45.
Aren’t we fortunate to live here! The promenade is a lovely spot that we can all enjoy, every day.
Gerry are you going to the same Promenade I am? Crowds of unruly people with Colt 45s? Really? You’ve had that experience frequently? I must be truly lucky because I have never run into that the dozens and dozens of times I have found myself enjoying the spectacular views of the greatest city in the world.
I think Gerry has the Canarsie Pier confused with the Promenade.
I think all that pool water chlorine is messing with Gerry’s head. I have never had that experience at the promenade.
I am looking for the kind neighbor called Heights who posted about a lost gift card last week. If you can drop me a line I would be grateful.
All the beautiful pictures of sunsets from the B’klyn Heights Promenade neglect to incorporate the lousy perpetual noise from tourist helicopters that have destroyed the peace, serenity and tranquillity that the Heights Promenade once offered(for 50 years). Senator Pat Monyihan (whom young bloggers who think noise is acceptable wouldn’t know existed) was so ahead of his time with his ‘defining deviancy down’. Chopper loving Mayor Grimm & his EDC staff(some who actually live in the heights) should be ashamed for fostering this on Brooklynites without our consent. Maybe it will come back to bite them when the tourist residing in the newly built BBP Hotel start complaining about the noise in there rooms.
So this gorgeous weekend with beautiful sunsets can be appreciated and loved by some but others only find the horrors of roving gangs drinking Colt 45’s out of paper bags while deafeaning tourist helicopters strafe the Promenade.
Remarkably, this latter group will tell you they are the “true lovers” of Brooklyn Heights.
@ Mr. Crusty – i have lived on The Promenade side of Montague Terrace fo rover 20 years and you can bet that an after hours crowd shows up with the Colt 45 Bottles, babys in strollers, boom-boxes, etc. none of these folks live in Brooklyn Heights.
A loud party errupts and some people behave poorly often on a hot summer night when many Brooklyn Heights residents have left the City for their country homes in Bucks County, PA or The Hamptons or Westport, CT.
Thats why the garbage cans are overflowing on a Sunday morning – full of beer cans, etc.!
And dont shoot the messenger!
@ Mark – swimming is a healer for the body and the mind and I am off to swim at Hofstra Unversity Swim Center and then I teach 2 classes to graduate students in the school of education nothing is wrong with my brain.
