As you walk down Clinton Street, towards the Brooklyn Bridge, you feel as if you're traveling back in time in Carroll Gardens. Each building whether on Clinton Street, or its sidestreets, has a story to tell.
Owners are constantly working on maintaining them, making sure they preserve their uniqueness. Although Carroll Gardens is a beautiful place to visit to see its old buildings and churches, some of which have been converted to condominiums, there is also the night life.
The Smith Street Strip, amongst others such as Court Street is home to a mixed variety of restaurants, bars and specialty stores. Each restaurant and bar are just as unique as the old residential buildings in Carroll Gardens. Block after block you can't help but to peer into each and every single estalishment, and wonder "I wonder what the food is like", or "I love the lighting in that bar". You can visit as many times as you like, and each time, there will be something different to look at and something different to feel.
