"In the Heart of Brooklyn Heights"
Pierrepont Street is in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, one of the most upscale of all neighborhoods and an address that most people would die for. Only about four blocks long, Pierrepont Street runs perpendicular to the East River. Mostly older brownstone homes and mid-size apartments, Pierrepont Street gets into more of a business environment as you travel toward Cadman Plaza and the Court Street/Borough Hall subway station. Living in this area is ideal for singles and couples and retired folks, since it is a stone's throw away from Manhattan and closes to subway transportation. As a trendy neighborhood, you don't have to go far to find restaurants and services. Most of them are locally owned. You won't find many chains here. Pierrepont Street is close enough to the Brooklyn Heights promenade, which is a favorite place to walk and gaze over the lower Manhattan skyline. This is a good neighborhood, although it is very expensive. It takes a long time to find a vacancy.
