If you're in the neighborhood, it's always fun to walk the mile or so of Smith Street from Atlantic Avenue to the end. There are lots of interesting stores, restaurants, and bars. The closer you get to Atlantic, the fancier the establishments become. but it's still all human scale and pretty laid back. Nearby is Court Street, which runs parallel... More

Though I was a bit hesitant bout staying in Brooklyn, it was beyond our expectations. Safe area full of bars and restaurants. Close to the underground station. Great for the bar hoppers and families

I could eat out everynight here. There are loads of little resturants and bars. Some cute and some not so, but always something going on!

We had a copy of a literary review from one of the New York magazines (thanks to my cousin for that!) which detailed a walking tour around Brooklyn Heights, Cobble |Hill and on to Boerum Hill. So we set off and did most of it. Lovely area, beautiful houses. We finished up in Bar Tabac on the corner of Smith... More

Smith Street, from 1st Place all the way to Atlantic Avenue, is a great place to visit and to eat. There are brand new restaurants opening every few months BUT the real, well established places are still here, too. Long before all the Yippsters, Hipters, Yuppies and Artsey Fartsy groups came along, Smith Street was a Blue Collar, Working Class... More

I am a native Brooklynite - yes we do exit! And have been visiting (and eventually moved to) Carroll Gardens for over 20 year (man I feel old). I have seen Smith Street go through many make-overs, from being "sketchy" in the '80 and early '90s to local in the late '90s early '00 to the present when it's mostly... More

Many locally owned-and-operated clothing, furnishing, & knickknack stores, as well as delectable eateries abound on Brooklyn's Smith St. It's definitely worth the quick F-train ride from Manhattan. Bonus: also check out Carroll Gardens cinema one block over for the best in independent screen gems & big budget flicks for less-than-Manhattan prices.

Smith Street started getting trendy about in the year 2000. That was when it really started getting gentrified, and all of a sudden, many restaurants and bars started opening up. One of the first places is Bar Tabac. In fact, Brooklyn's Smith Street is the home to quite a number of inexpensive yet delicous French restaurants. It's a great place... More
