No. 4
South Brooklyn


Yeah, yeah, we get that Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill and Boerum Hill have their distinctive characters, but so do Fiske Terrace and Midwood Park—and they’re all still just Midwood to us! So, South Brooklyn: easily reached by the F train, with extended G service now, too, connecting residents to all points between Greenpoint and Kensington. What’s really lacking here is outdoor space: aside from the modestly sized Carroll Park, there ain’t much of it. But the area makes up for that with the food-and-drink scene on Smith Street, one of the borough’s best. There’s also one of our favorite local movie theaters, Cobble Hill Cinema, and BookCourt, with its first-rate bookings. Boerum Hill also has Roulette, one of the most adventurous classical venues in the city. Plus, there’s the historic housing stock in Cobble Hill, and the old brownstones with their spacious front gardens—thus the name—in Carroll Gardens.
