Brooklyn Heights was one of the first communities built on Long Island after the Dutch took over what is now Lower Manhattan and set up their trading post there in 1626 (the area was called Breuckelen by them).

By 1840, a thriving community already existed here—a neighborhood filled with warehouses and shipbuilding facilities owned by wealthy businessmen such as Isaac Ransom Rogers and Jacob Sharp Williams—and it continued to thrive until World War II.
