A neighborhood with soul and a view. You can wander around and take in the neighborhood architecture, try the variety of interesting restaurants or just stroll along the promenade and look at Manhattan across the way.

The brownstone homes are just fascinating. The area is safe and the homeowners take pride in their homes. People were real friendly in this neighborhood. There are some neat shops in the area. A real nice area of Brooklyn.

This area is noted for the eclectic lifestyle and great view of Manhattan. The Cosby Show came to mind when I saw the Brownstoned homes. This area has quaint restaurants and shops. I found a Sephora! Mt. Sinai is also here.
