Flat or Tall?: The very definition of picturesque, residential Cobble Hill houses gorgeous Italianite style brownstones and well-maintained 19th century brick row houses with nary a tall building, or a particularly modern one, in sight.
History: First designated “Ponkiesbergh” when it was settled by the Dutch in the mid 1600′s, Cobble Hill earned its current moniker for the deposits of cobble stones that were used to make buttresses in several early American battles. For most of the 1800′s, the historically Italian area was a relatively rural part of “South Brooklyn”. The establishment of the New York City Landmark Preservation Commission in the mid-sixties saved the neighborhood from massive overdevelopment and economic inflation, leaving the well-preserved village that it is today.
Activities: Head down Smith Street for your dose of local fashion, hip art galleries, and farm-to-table delicacies and plot your next novel while people-watching at Bar Tabac. A Saturday afternoon might find you at a Painted Pot class with the kids, or out on a date at the hip restaurant Battersby. Afterward, let the mixologist at the famed Clover Club concoct one of the finest cocktails in the city, attitude free. Catch the latest Woody Allen flick at Cobble Hill Cinemas, or enjoy an artisanal cone at the brick and mortar outpost of haute ice cream purveyors Van Leeuwen. A stroll through the area on a nice night will find most of your neighbors doing the same.
