How to enjoy one of the best views of New York?

Welcome to Brooklyn.

In addition to crossing the bridge which is an essential stopover in New York for its beauty, its view and its history, this route will introduce you to the the borough of Brooklyn through two radically different neighborhoods: Brooklyn Heights and DUMBO.

As you travel through Brooklyn Heights, dubbed America's First Suburb, you'll visit a residential, historic, rather conservative neighborhood.

While exploring DUMBO, you will discover a former industrial district which has now become the district of startups and companies geared towards new technologies.

These neighborhoods nevertheless have one exceptional point in common: their view of Manhattan.
