Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn?
Is there a "Brooklyn Heights" anywhere else in the world that might reasonably be confused with the Brooklyn Heights in Brooklyn, New York? If so I have never heard of it. I don't see the need for disambiguation.
I propose moving this page either back to "Brooklyn Heights" or to "Brooklyn Heights, New York". Comments?

- A year later, I've had to move it again. Someone moved it back months ago, claiming that it needs to match the "naming convention" of Brooklyn neighborhoods, but such rules are made to be broken. See Philadelphia versus Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, or New York City versus Albany, New York. Using Brooklyn twice in the title is redundant and there is no other "Brooklyn Heights" whereas there are many other Williamsburgs, etc. Uris 01:23, 1 March 2007 (UTC)
Thank you to whomever pointed out my error in the caption for the Love Lane "carriage house." I did not realize that it was of fairly new construction (although that does explain the marvellous condition of the building) jmillernet 09:24, 4 April 2006 (UTC)
I couldn't find St. Ann's listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site - can anyone verify that fact?
I don't see it on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites either. There is a St Ann's Church in the Old Town of Vilnius which is no. 541 on UNESCO's World Heritage List - this may be the source of confusion. Cnuttall 19:36, 25 December 2006 (UTC)
Henry Miller definitely lived in Brooklyn Heights and should be included in the list. I am not sure Arthur Miller lived in BH and am thinking the writer made a mistake and intended to say Henry.
This article is missing alot. Suprisingly, there is a picture of Pierrepont Ave. but no mention of Hezekiah Pierrepont the founder of Brooklyn Heights. The first commuter suburb in America founded in 1819. Pierrepont funded Robert Fulton's ferry in part and bought 60 acres from the Bergen farm that was outside the village of Brooklyn. It was uber-affluent since its inception, not since 1834(incorporation of the city of Brooklyn). Advertised by Pierrepont as a place where the city met the country and as a retreat for the businessman away from the city but ever so close  Kyle.chris (talk) 18:55, 17 December 2008 (UTC)--Kyle.chris (talk) 18:55, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
