On the northern-most edge of the neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights you can get your first glimpses of the Brooklyn Bridge. Framed by the Watchtower buildings, the bridge continues to be one of New York City's most popular tourist destinations. The neighborhood below the Brooklyn tower, part Brooklyn Heights / part DUMBO, has seen a resurgence in recent years with the creation of Brooklyn Bridge Park and the continued popularity of tourist attractions like Grimaldi's Pizza.
