See Why Photographers Flock to This Corner of Joralemon Street in Brooklyn Heights (Photos)

While it will never compete with the Dumbo view of the Manhattan Bridge, surely the most Instagrammed shot in Brooklyn, a colorful stretch of Joralemon Street is one of the most photographed spots in Brooklyn Heights.

The lush greenery, a lamppost hung with flowers, and tutti-frutti multi-colored houses are catnip to Instagrammers. Located in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, the block of Joralemon Street slopes gently in the direction of the waterfront, giving the 1840s Greek Revival houses at Nos. 35 through 43 a dynamic appeal.

And because Columbia Place dead ends at the lamppost, photographers can back up far enough on this narrow street to get an eyeful.
