Fun Facts and History of Crown Heights

Crown Heights began its life a bit later than most Brooklyn neighborhoods, becoming a residential area only after the revolutionary war. However, once it got going in the early 1800’s, it quickly became a haven for secondary homes of the wealthy King’s County elite. This popularity only increased when train lines were extended to the area in the late 1800’s.

While many of those older Victorian homes are still around, brownstone row houses were built in the early 1900’s to thrust the area into the modern day. Around the 1950’s Crown Heights began to see an influx of diversity with large populations of black and immigrant communities moving into the neighborhood.

The 1970’s were a turbulent time for the city, and Crown Heights was no exception. Neglect and escalating tensions eventually led to the Crown Heights Riot of 1991, which was such a tragic event that community leaders gathered in mourning and decided that something must be done. A rejuvenation project began that brought the community together in celebration of its diversity. Now, Crown Heights is a peaceful area where families and young professionals can rest after a long day in the city.
