Crown Heights

A diverse neighborhood with Caribbean roots and a quickly growing main drag.

To get a feel for the energy in Crown Heights, take a walk down Franklin Avenue. The stretch is bursting with new businesses, bars and restaurants, most of them locally owned. It speaks to the recent popularity of the neighborhood, which is close to a number of subway trains, Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Museum. Further east into the neighborhood it’s quieter and more residential, but the area boasts some fantastic residential architecture. And don’t forget to visit Nostrand Avenue to get a feel for the neighborhood’s Caribbean and West Indian culture. Photo courtesy of David Wilson via Flickr.
