Fun Facts and History of Central Brooklyn

Originally a Dutch colony, Central Brooklyn fell into British hands in 1664 and played an important role in the American Revolution, being the biggest part of the battlefield during The Battle of Long Island. After the Revolution, the area was incorporated into Kings County. Neighborhoods like Flatbush became part of Brooklyn in 1894, just in time for Brooklyn to join the greater New York City in 1898.

The 20th century brought several factories to NYC, and this area was perfect for working-class families to live in more spacious and affordable conditions. Some parts of the area became bourgeois suburbs, where upper-class families could move into luxurious brownstones (many of which still stand today).

The later 20th century brought changing demographics to the Central Brooklyn area; the ensuing racial tension, highlighted by Crown Heights’ 1991 race riots, ultimately led to black and Jewish leaders working together to create peaceful co-existence in the community. Walk down Eastern Parkway today and you’ll see a diverse community relaxing on park benches, enjoying a nice meal, or grabbing a drink at a local bar.
