This quaint, upscale brownstone neighborhood is filled with families and has two main drags lined with mom and pop stores and restaurants.
Cobble Hill has brownstones to rival its northern neighbor of Brooklyn Heights, but its quirky main drags give the neighborhood a unique character. Cobble Hill’s side streets are lined with leafy trees, well-kept townhouses, and mothers pushing baby strollers. Move out to Court Street or Smith Street for different types of bars, packed restaurants and chic boutiques. The neighborhood is a shopping and nightlife destination for a reason. If you’d prefer to stick to the side streets, Cobble Hill has plenty of cozy corner cafes that serve the locals. While the neighborhood boasts a homey, quiet atmosphere, it remains a worthy destination for visitors. Photo courtesy of Adam Kuban via Flickr.
