This is a charming neighbourhood with some good options for food and drink. The flea market is very chilled and has a wide array of goods on sale and there is also a nice park popular in the morning with dog walkers. Recommended

Fort Greene is perfect for a peaceful walk down tree-lined blocks filled with brownstones. Fort Greene Park is beautiful, but not intimidatingly large like Prospect or Central Park. Check out the multitude of fantastic food options.

Saw a show at the Polonsky Theater and wandered around Fort Greene after the show. I haven't spent much time in Brooklyn and found the area to be a delightful surprise. Lovely shops, restaurants and people out at night. Music can be heard as you wonder about. It was great, so we spent the next day exploring this area. Fort... More

We had a great walk through this park on a Sunday morning. The history of the park is fascinating. The surrounding brownstones are also fun to look at. A nice neighborhood walk. And, there is free wi fi in their small visitors center.

So lovely to walk through the historic Fort Greene park and neighborhoods . Able to go see great theatre at BAM . The famous Flea market on Saturday and the restaurants are so excellent. The Brooklyn Museum is worth the visit and the Water Front for a bike ride is a good way to end the day.

The Park on Sundays looks like the great lawn of central park. There a great number of spot to shop for everything, but my favorite is MOSHOOD DESIGNS on Fulton and s.oxford street. Food choices from pizza to fine dinning. Wine store and the works.

After reading various reviews on Tripadvisor neighbourhoods in New York I decided on Fort Greene. What a great choice this was, it had everything within a short walk from the apartment, restaurants, bars, subway, park and market on a Saturday morning. Fort Greene is perfect to use as a base when visiting the sights in Manhattan. If you are adventurous... More

Fort Greene and Clinton Hill are among the loveliest of Brooklyn's many gorgeous old neighborhoods. Both neighborhoods have a black majority, but these are middle-class districts. Fort Greene is best known for the Memorial Column in Fort Greene Park, an extremely worthy sight; but there is much more to see. Here are pretty streets of classic brownstones and historic churches,... More

This area of Brooklyn has been transformed into a neighborhood with a good vibe. The shops, restaurants, arts, etc. have turned the spot around. Right in the midst of it is this nice little park. A little oasis amongst the activity. Besides being a nice park to run, walk, or relax there is a nice playground. The park also has... More
