Neighborhood: South Brooklyn

Population Density: According to the 2008 census, South Brooklyn had a population density over 25,000 people per sq. mile. With their low-rise residential landscape, the streets are active both day and night, but still maintain a “small-town sensibility” amidst a bustling metropolis.

Adjacent Neighborhoods: South Brooklyn officially encompasses the neighborhoods of Cobble Hill, Red Hook, Carroll Gardens, Park Slope and Gowanus, but loosely includes adjacent neighborhoods of Brooklyn Heights, Boerum Hill and South Slope.

Public Transit: Public transit is excellent. The F and G subway lines snakes through entire area and the 2/3/4/5/N/R can be picked up in nearby Brooklyn Heights. Atlantic Ave-Barclays Center is the second-most serviced subway station in the city with 2/3/4/5/B/D/N/QR and also connects with the LIRR. There are many Public Bus Services along the waterfront, to Manhattan and crosstown.

What’s Here: Cross-river views of lower Manhattan from the Brooklyn Promenade. Smith Street in Cobble Hill/Carroll Gardens is possibly the most eminent restaurant row in NYC. BAM Cultural District is renowned for international and local theater and film. The recently opened Barclay’s Center is the home of the Brooklyn Nets and has become a rival to Madison Square Garden for concert performances. The architects who designed Prospect Park also designed Central Park.

Flat or Tall?: Heavily pre-war, so mostly flat; taller buildings may be forthcoming but as of now shorter buildings rule.

History: George Washington watched the battle of Long Island from atop Cobble Hill, as noted by a plaque at the site (which is now home to a Trader Joe’s). Single and multi-family brownstones and tree-lined streets offer an attractive, community and family-oriented lifestyle. Historically there have been numerous cultural, political and celebrity inhabitants in the area, a trend that continues today.

Activities: It’s hard to imagine better shots of Manhattan than the ones you can get from the Promenade. Go eat on Smith Street it’s hard to do much better anywhere in New York and hit up BAM for culture and Prospect Park for sunshine.
