Greenwood Heights

Greenwood Heights is both a neighborhood of industry and livability. While most of the neighborhood is made up of the Green-Wood Cemetery, just southwest of Prospect Park, a good amount of people live here for the waterfront views and easy access to busier parts of Brooklyn.

Fun Facts and History of Greenwood Heights

After playing a major role in the Battle of Long Island during the American Revolution, Greenwood became a cemetery for fallen soldiers of the war. The portion of the neighborhood west of the cemetery was a very popular port, which is why housing started to pop up here.

While still largely industrial, the population of the area grew in the 1800’s, the affordable prices attracting the working class and the newly immigrated. The neighborhood was thriving until the Great Depression whipped out much of the business brought in by factories and the waterfront.

Greenwood Heights became known as an area for the impoverished by the 1960’s. It remained this way until real estate developers tried to pitch the area as part of South Slope. Once people began moving here again, Greenwood Heights took back its own identity. Businesses began opening back up, and now Greenwood Heights is increasing in popularity.

Greenwood Heights Buildings

Greenwood Heights has a fascinating collection of buildings, mostly on the shorter side. Wood frame homes can be found next to brick row houses making for a unique look that is hard to find in other parts of Brooklyn.
