Early settlement[ edit ] Brooklyn Heights occupies a palisade that rises sharply from the river's edge and gradually recedes on the landward side. Before the Dutch settled on Long Island in the middle of the seventeenth century, this promontory was called Ihpetonga "the high sandy bank" by the native Lenape American Indians.
The most significant of the ferries went between the current Fulton Street and Peck Slip in Manhattan, and was run by Cornelius Dirksen. The ferry service helped the lowland area to thrive, with both farms and some factories along the water, but the higher ground was sparsely used. After the war, the acre tract of land belonging to John Rapeljie, who was a Loyalistwas confiscated and sold to the Sands brothers, who tried to develop the part of the land on the palisade as a community they called "Olympia", but failed to make it come about, partly because of the difficulty of building there.
They later sold part of their land to John Jackson, who created the Vinegar Hill community, much of which later became the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Since his intention was to sell to merchants and bankers who lived in Manhattan, he needed easy access between Brooklyn Heights and New York City, which Fulton's company provided.
Wishing to sub-divide and develop his property, Pierrepont realized the need for regularly scheduled ferry service across the East River, and to this end he became a prominent investor in Robert Fulton 's New York and Brooklyn Steam Ferry Boat Company, using his influence on Fulton's behalf; he eventually became a part owner and a director of the company.
John and Jacob Hicks, who also owned property on Brooklyn Heights, north of Pierrepont's, favored smaller lots, as they were pitching their land to tradesman and artisans already living in Brooklyn, not attempting to lure merchants and bankers from Manhattan as Pierrepont was. To counter the Hickses' proposal, Pierrepont hired a surveyor and submitted an alternative.
In the end, the Hickses' plan was adopted north of Clark Street, and Pierrepont's, featuring 25 by foot 8 by 30 meter lots, south of it. Beecher was a nationally known figure famous on the lecture circuit for his novel oratorical style, in which he employed humor, dialect, and slang.
Under Beecher, so many slaves passed through Plymouth Church on their way to freedom in Canada that later generations have referred to the church as the " Grand Central Station of the Underground Railroad.
Beecher also raised money to buy other slaves out of captivity, and shipped rifles to abolitionists in Kansas and Nebraska in crates labelled "Bibles", which gave the rifles the nickname " Beecher's Bibles ".
The resulting ease of transportation into the neighborhood and the perceived loss of the specialness and "quality" began to drive out the merchants and patricians who lived there; in time their mansions were divided to become apartment houses and boarding houses.
Artists began to move into the neighborhood, as well as writers, and a number of large hotels — the St. Georgethe Margaretthe BossertLeverich Towersand the Pierrepontamong others   — were constructed. By the beginning of the Depressionmost of the middle class had left the area.
Boarding houses had become rooming houses, and the neighborhood began to have the appearance of a slum. Architect Percival Goodman presented an alternate plan to maintain all sound structures, which garnered 25, supporters.
In earlya compromise proposal came from City Hall calling for two 22 story towers with over 1, luxury and middle income units. The Brooklyn Heights Association fully supported the compromise plan despite strong opposition from the preservation community, including the North Heights Community Group.
It became a favorite spot among locals, offering magnificent vistas of the Statue of Libertythe Manhattan skyline across the East Riverthe Brooklyn Bridgethe Manhattan Bridgeand spectacular fireworks displays over the East River. Opposition to this plan led to the re-routing of the expressway to the side of the bluff, allowing creation of the Promenade.
This was followed in the following decades by the further gentrification of the neighborhood into a firmly middle-class area, which became "one of New York City's most pleasant and attractive neighborhoods. The building was constructed in and was designed by George B.
The neighborhood is largely composed of blocks of picturesque rowhouses and a few mansions. The basement is typically a half-flight down from the street, and was used as the work area for servants, including the kitchen.
The first floor would be the location of the public rooms, bedrooms were on the second floor, and servants quarters were on the top floor. The rear of the lot would feature a private garden.
The concentration of over pre-Civil War houses, one of the largest ensembles of such housing in the nation, and the human scale of the three, four- and five-story buildings creates a neighborly atmosphere. Brooklyn Heights has very few high-rise buildings.
Among these buildings are 75 Livingston StreetHotel St. Georgeand the Concord Village co-op development on Adams Street. Additionally, Jehovah's Witnesses had their world headquarters in the northern part of Brooklyn Heights at 25 Columbia Heights.
The organization restored a number of historic buildings to house their staff, including the former Hotel Bossertonce the seasonal home of many Dodgers players, on Montague Street. Inthe organization announced plans to begin selling off their numerous properties in the Heights and nearby downtown Brooklyn since they plan to relocate themselves in upstate New York.Issuu is a digital publishing platform that makes it simple to publish magazines, catalogs, newspapers, books, and more online.
