“Nice Stop for a Quick Walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

There are several interesting churches to look at and older homes that take one back to the early part of the last century. Could not get inside the Unitarian Church to see the Tiffany windows but they look great from the outside.

“My Old Stomping Ground”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I went to High School in this area and the brownstones are incredible. It is now a up and coming place to live and dare say much better than being in NYC(Manhattan) where I grew up.

“If you're in Brooklyn, this is a really pretty and quaint place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

This is a warm, inviting and quaint neighborhood filled with beautiful brownstones. The streets are very pretty and peaceful. The main street is called Montague Street and this street is filled with stores and restaurants and at the end of the block you have the entrance to the promenade which is a cool place to sit, relax and enjoy the views of Manhattan skyline.

“Very Pretty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I think this is a really nice area. I love the homes and trees. We were on a tour here and the view across the river to the Manhattan skyline was amazing. This must be an awesome place to live.
