Brooklyn Heights was New York's first historic district. It has been home to writers from Walt Whitman to Norman Mailer. George Washington had his headquarters here and Abraham Lincoln visited Plymouth Church, where you can see the pew he occupied. Most of the homes here date from the mid 19th century, the oldest constructed in 1824.
