Some years ago I set up a Google alert for “Brooklyn Heights” in order to get any news about our neighborhood soon after it appeared. One thing I quickly learned was that city-wide publications were inclined to give an expansive definition to “Brooklyn Heights”, often reporting incidents in Downtown Brooklyn, Boerum Hill, or even Gowanus, as happening here. I also noticed that I was getting news about a suburb of Cleveland (see photo). Later, I learned that Brooklyn Heights is part of Thomaston, Maine and a park in Maryland. Then there’s Prestige Brooklyn Heights, a luxury high-rise in Bangalore, India’s tech capital.
It seems we have quite the brand.
