Downtown Brooklyn was one of the first parts of the borough to be settled by the Dutch. When the British took over in 1664, the area was turned into the central business district for the City of Brooklyn.

Although the rest of the city was relatively indifferent to the Slave Trade, Downtown Brooklyn was the rare exception. Full of abolitionists, this neighborhood provided the massive support need to get slavery abolished in New York in 1827.
