A Day Out in Brooklyn

Morning

Take the No. 2 or 3 subway train to Eastern Parkway – Brooklyn Museum, for the world-class Brooklyn Museum . The museum is part of a civic complex that includes the stately Grand Army Plaza, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden , with its well-known Japanese garden, and neighboring Prospect Park.

Along the western edge of Prospect Park is the beautiful Park Slope Historic District. Stop for coffee at Ozzie’s, 57 7th Avenue, before taking in the area’s historic residences. Browse the hip line-up of small shops along 7th Avenue, and stop for lunch at one of the many cafés here.

Afternoon

Return by train to Borough Hall and head for the Brooklyn Heights Historic District. Walk along Pierrepont, Willow, and Cranberry streets to see some 19th century houses; Truman Capote wrote Breakfast at Tiffany’s in the basement of No. 70 Willow, and Arthur Miller once owned the property at No. 155.

A short walk east brings you to Atlantic Avenue . Look in on the spice shops here, and stop for refreshments at the Waterfront Ale House, 155 Atlantic Avenue. Head back to the Brooklyn Bridge, stopping at the Brooklyn Heights Promenade for dramatic vistas of Lower Manhattan’s towers. End the day with dinner at the romantic River Café .
