Lots to see in Carroll Gardens - you may want to include as part of your walk along Court and/or Smith streets. Classic brownstones, nice restaurants, cafes. Pleasant way to spend a morning is to stroll from Smith/ 9th Street station to Atlantic Avenue.

This well known neighborhood is an experience if you walk around here . The Brownstones and the charm of it unequalled ! This once Italian locality is now multi cultural but pricey . The quaint gardens in old buildings and the new developments make it an enviable house for the house hunters . The place is littered with charm but... More

Charming old Brooklyn neighbor that has become one of the trendiest neighborhood for families. It has the feel of an old Italian neighborhood, which it used to be. It is full of character and has a lot of diverse restaurants and bars.

Very pleasant and safe to walk around. We did this as tourists from Australia, to escape crazy Manhattan, enjoy some cafes with a local feel and this is certainly the place to... More

Similar to Park Slope and Brooklyn Heights but without the views. Many well maintained brownstones from the turn of the century. Pleasant safe just to walk about.
