Brooklyn Heights has two things going for it: the panoramic Promenade and the beautiful old homes. These are no minor virtues, and the access to multiple subway lines, from the R to the 2/3, is a nice bonus. But c’mon: the restaurants aren’t among the borough’s best, the bars are relatively scant, there’s not a whole lot of art, and it’s as expensive as fuck. Plus, residents whine about everything, whether it’s a hot dog cart on Montague Street or a $40 million sports complex. Bonus points for the Brooklyn Heights Cinema—points that will be taken away when it closes this fall/winter.
