Boerum Hill

This neighborhood charms with its quiet residential streets, lined with impressive architecture, and cozy cafes and restaurants

Boerum Hill, a small neighborhood nestled between Cobble Hill and Park Slope, is sometimes overlooked. But Boerum Hill’s quiet residential streets, lined with impressive architecture, are home to several cafes and restaurants worth a visit. Crowds pack into popular restaurants Mile End and Rucola and drink at the historic Brooklyn Inn, one of the oldest bars in Brooklyn. Spend an afternoon wandering the streets and sampling the food and drink and you’ll understand why this tiny neighborhood is packed with so many people who love it. Photo courtesy of Brett Renfer via Flickr.
