I grew up here. Although the area has changed it changed for the better. From a border line slum-working class area to a really great area . All the shops and stores ,brownstones and homes make this a really great area.

The tour was for 12 people and interestingly, most of the people on the tour were from the USA (with a couple of us from other countries), including a number of people who grew up near Smith Street in the 1980s and could not believe how the area had changed...

This area is more upscale than many in Brooklyn. Residents appear to take pride in their homes. There are mainly family owned businesses which include small shops, restaurants, and bakeries. The area seems a little more congested due to narrower streets but that is most of NYC. There are nearby subway stations.

Ok, maybe a little bias because we lived in cobble hill b.c. Had to see it, great residential streets with brownstones, very little "chain" stores, smelled so good on court street. Looked like nice little local restaurants. Just a comfy vibe.

Call the store, was told to bring container and nail in. I also wrote to corporate about this unpleasant disguising experience. I'm waiting for them to get back to me with their... More

This neighborhood is located in the combined tri-neighborhood of BoCoCa (Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens) which is roughly west of Fourth Avenue and below Atlantic Avenue right before the Brooklyn Promenade and Atlantic Terminal and Barclays Center. The housing stock is impressive but expensive by Brooklyn standards in that they are large Brownstone homes three to four stories tall... More

I've been visiting this neighborhood for the past 10 years, and never tire of it. Besides mod places like Trader Joe's, there still remain lots of ethnic stores and restaurants that have defined the character of Atlantic Avenue for decades. Zahadi's, in particular, carries a wide variety of gourmet and Middle Eastern food -- including their famous baklava that I... More
