Quiet little park with lots of tennis courts and ball diamonds for the locals, great views (the park is in part one big hill) a few tables, some sitting areas and a large monument to the prison ship martyrs as well as a small museum attended by a NYC Ranger. Worth a stop if in the area,

Crossed the Brooklyn Bridge and walked here, obviously the wrong way as we were constantly looking behind us ( for fear of our lives) the streets are filthy littered with rubbish and dog poo everywhere. Plenty other places to see in Brooklyn.

Growing up in Park Slope Brooklyn, the nearby tree lined streets and good high schools were of most importance. My parents were understanding - "you want to be dumb, forget it and save money and time"!Fort Greene & Brooklyn Tech HS were THE BEST!

Fort Green has some of the the city's most beautiful architecture. Take a lovely stroll through the blocks between Dekalb Ave and Lafayette Avenue. Start at the Masonic Temple and the ornate St Anne church at Clermont Ave & Lafayette Ave, then walk along Adelphi St, Carlton Ave and up to 6th Street - notice the old colonial type houses... More

Fort Greene has a wonderful park next to the Hospital. Great for a stroll with or without your dog. Before 9 am, you can let your dog off leash. There are tennis courts in the park that are free to use and the courts are in real good shape. The park is nicely maintained as well. The park also is... More

Walking the bucolic streets for Fort Greene is to experience the best of what Brooklyn offers. The restaurants and little shops only add to the distinct flavor of the area. A wonderful place to visit or to live.

Id been in Fort Greene when I lived in Brooklyn as it is adjacent to Downtown Brooklyn and Bedford Stuyvesant amongst other notable areas. The housing stock here is very impressive looking with Brownstones and Brick Rowhouses but I often get confused as to where this neighborhood starts and stops with all the current gentrification going on. Its rents are... More

Brooklyn's Fort Greene neighborhood, east of Downtown Brooklyn & north of Park Slope, is yet another of Brooklyn's wonderful old brownstone districts. Its centerpiece is the hilly Fort Greene Park, which boasts the Prison Ship Martyrs Monument (1909), commemorating the 11,500 American patriots died in the 11 British prison ships anchored in nearby Wallabout Bay, 1776-83 - more than the...

We wanted to go to the Brooklyn Flea and were a little confused by the multiple locations. But we figured out this one was open when we could go, so we made the effort to find it. Parking was a bit tough, but eventually found street parking. All the vendors were set up within a fenced area (actually a playground).... More
