With its tree-lined streets and storied brownstones, Crown Heights is classic Brooklyn—a quaint, diverse neighborhood popular amongst new families, artists and young professionals alike. In addition to its prominent culinary and entertainment scenes, the area is also home to some of the borough’s top museums and natural sanctuaries including the Brooklyn Museum, Children’s Museum, Central Library and the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.
Neighboring Prospect Park, one of South Brooklyn’s biggest draws, provides convenient peace and quiet as well as year-round recreation—for the warmer months, boating, biking, roller-skating and a zoo, and in wintertime, sledding, cross-country skiing and ice skating.
And when its time to explore, Park Slope, Fort Greene and Clinton Hill, popular dining and entertainment destinations in their own right, are all within walking distance. Four subway lines and five bus lines makes this one of the more accessible Brooklyn neighborhoods.
