Fort Greene Real Estate

Not just one of the finest neighborhoods in the city, but one of the top neighborhoods of any city in the world. This is no exaggeration. Fort Greene combines the charm of London's smallest neighborhoods with the mystery of Paris's Left Bank and the creativity and diversity of New York. Artists, filmmakers, novelists, scientists, financiers, florists, and barbecue chefs call this neighborhood home.

Why? The streets, convenience and beauty. DeKalb Avenue contains one of Brooklyn's best restaurant rows where South African restaurants meet French bistros meet dive bars meet elegant townhouse restaurants where people get married. There are organic markets across the street from artisanal beer halls.

People with baby carriages stop to talk in the streets then stroll over to coffee shops and wine bars. There are carriage houses, new developments, pre-war apartment buildings, and beautiful brownstones. Downtown Brooklyn is a short walk away. The C train at Lafayette Avenue is close to other new restaurants, bars, bookstores, and clothing boutiques. But there are also hardware stores, barbecue joints, and tiny restaurants that from the street at night look as inviting as a Norman Rockwell painting.

Fort Greene Park provides a neighborhood amenity. The Prison Ship Martyrs' Monument, a memorial to the Revolutionary War, anchors the park. Six tennis courts draw athletes from all over the borough and Manhattan. Brooklyn Technical High School is one of the most impressive academic structures in New York City. Once you visit Fort Greene, it's hard not to want to live there.

CLASSICS AND INSIDE TIPS:

Dine: Prospect. Sound American fare drawing rave reviews from restaurant critics.

Drink: Madeba. South African restaurant with a bar scene drawing city councilman, community leaders, and newbies. Prepare to hear tales of the neighborhood.

See: Fort Greene Park. Play tennis, read a book on a blanket, or sit on the steps of the Prison Ship Martyr's Memorial, a reminder of Brooklyn's prominent role in the Revolutionary War.
