Top 3 Brooklyn Neighborhoods!

We’ve scrolled the internet, visited neighborhoods and wandered the streets to bring you our top 3 picks for the best neighborhoods in Brooklyn!

#1. Williamsburg

Bordering Greenpoint, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Bushwick and Ridgewood Queens, Williamsburg is a variable hotspot for indie culture. Musicians and artists first started flocking to the Brooklyn neighborhood for the low rents but this has changed significantly since the mid-90s. Nicknamed ‘Manhattan Brooklyn’ by some New Yorkers, Williamsburg has certainly made a name for itself and is the place of the moment.

#2. Park Slope

Bound by Prospect Park, Fourth Avenue, Flatbush Avenue and Prospect Expressway Park Slope wears it’s affluent crown with pride. Ranked the #1 neighborhood in New York by New York Magazine in 2010, it is home to historic buildings, amazing restaurants, bars and shops. Want a fun Park Slope fact? It’s where the longest running Jewish congregation is – Beth Elohim.

#3. Brooklyn Heights

Originally referred to as ‘Brooklyn Village’, Brooklyn Heights has been around since 1834. Nestled between Old Fulton Street, Atlantic Avenue, the East River and Court Street  Brooklyn Heights is filled with beautiful rowhouses and a few scattered mansions. It was the first neighborhood to be protected by the 1965 Landmarks Preservation Law of New York City.
