We've Arrived! Brooklyn Heights Promenade The Brooklyn Heights Promenade will take your breath away. Made famous by cameo appearances in movies like Annie Hall and Moonstruck, it is one of the most romantic spots in New York City, and has been the destination for thousands of first dates, wedding proposals and anniversary celebrations. One-third of a mile long, it offers a vista of the Statue of Liberty, the Manhattan skyline and the majestic Brooklyn Bridge. Lined with flower beds, trees, benches and playgrounds, the promenade is a favorite destination for tourists, joggers, strollers, families and lovers. Looking out on the East River, the promenade is bordered by grand townhouses and mansions, and is part of Brooklyn's first Historic Preservation District. During the 1800's, New York and Brooklyn boomed and many of New York's wealthiest investors settled in Brooklyn Heights. In the mid-1940s Robert Moses wanted to construct a new expressway right through the heart of Brooklyn Heights.
