Ft Greene….

Ft. Greene Runs from Atlantic Avenue on the South to Nassau Street on the north; from Flatbush Avenue on the West to Washington Avenue on the East.

The area, built up mostly around the Civil War, is architecture heaven. There are beautiful churches like that of St. Michael and St. Edward (a twin-towered beauty that looks like a medieval French castle); rows of lovely brownstones near the park; and, great for renters, reasonably priced apartments with lots of sunlight! Best of all, home’s amazingly convenient; you’re walking distance from Brooklyn’s active and antic downtown.

A dynamic and well-rounded Brooklyn neighborhood. Once predominantly black, it now touches just about every corner of the race-income matrix, including a large black middle and upper-middle class. Much of the neighborhood is in a historic district, and its homes, especially in Clinton Hill, are often majestic. The Pratt Institute gives it some gravity as an artistic center. Its crime and public-school rankings remain below average, however, which is why it’s still cheaper to live here than next door in Boerum Hill or Park Slope.

  1. Ahh, walking through those leafy streets in between Brooklyn brownstones is absolutely one of my favourite things to do when visiting NYC! Do you live in Brooklyn? If so, lucky you! Cheers!
