Statement of Significance (as of designation - January 12, 1965):
Brooklyn Heights, with its phenomenal views of Lower Manhattan across the East River, was one of New York's most prestigious 19th-century addresses. Houses and churches remain in excellent condition and present an almost complete architectural catalog of the variety of styes available during its heyday. Brooklyn Heights, still a popular residential area, became new York City's first designated historic district in 1965. Examples of early ironwork, flagstone sidewalks, and other embellishments add to its charm and to its significance.
