Photographer's Note

New York City is divided into five boroughs, and each of these boroughs are divided into many unique neighborhoods. On the western edge of Brooklyn is the area called Brooklyn Heights, which you can see in this photo.

This part of Brooklyn contains many beautiful row houses and mansions, and they are within walking distance to the promenade. From there you can enjoy a fabulous view of Manhattan, the bridges, and the Statue of Liberty.

In 1965 the entire neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights was designated as a historic district, the first such designation in NYC. Walt Whitman worked there for many years, and the family on the "Cosby Show" resided there, as well.
