Atmosphere of South Brooklyn

Not to be confused with Southern Brooklyn, home to Coney Island, South Brooklyn is a historic term rather than a geographic one. The neighborhoods of this borough are actually more to the northwestern part of the modern day borough and share a lot of the same vibes.

These neighborhoods are largely residential, but many have vibrant night lives and plenty of museums and attractions. Many of these neighborhoods are also undergoing massive changes, adding more apartment complexes and single family homes. This has made the area popular with artists, young professionals, and families alike.

Transportation Options of South Brooklyn

The New York City subway provides good service to this area particularly via the F, G, D, N, and R trains. The only neighborhood that is not easily accessible via these lines is Red Hook, but the buses in that area more than make up for the lack of trains.

Biking is popular everywhere in Brooklyn, and South Brooklyn is no different. With miles of bike lane being added every year, as well as tons of Citi Bike docking stations for your convenience, biking in South Brooklyn has never been easier.

Driving in this area is also very easy to do. Traffic is usually light and there’s plenty of parking.

Fun Facts and History of South Brooklyn

As stated before, South Brooklyn is a historical term referring to the former southern most part of the Village of Brooklyn. While this area is no longer the southernmost point in the borough, the name stuck.

When the Dutch colonized this land, it was used for trade and farming. That tradition continued when the colony was taken by the British in 1664 and after the American Revolution. When the industrial revolution hit, this land was used for military, trade, and several industrial purposes, greatly polluting the area, especially the Gowanus Canal.

The transition from industrial neighborhoods to residential ones happened quickly for neighborhoods like Boerum Hill and Windsor Terrace. However, the transition was a lot slower for coastal neighborhoods like Sunset Park and Gowanus, much of the latter still being developed to this day. Today, most of the neighborhoods in this area are a fun mix of quiet and trendy, meaning there’s something for everyone.
