Neighborhood Guide

Fort Greene

A leafy brownstone neighborhood that revolves around its namesake park.

It’s hard not to fall in love with Fort Greene’s pristine brownstones and quiet narrow blocks — most of which lead to Fort Greene Park, with its rolling green hills and towering trees. The park is a popular destination for local residents and visitors alike. Corner cafes and a diverse selection of restaurants give the neighborhood a cozy feel, but it’s only a short walk away to reach the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the always-busy Atlantic Terminal transportation hub, and the Barclays Center, Brooklyn’s premier venue for sports events and concerts.
