Crown Heights

The Heart of Brooklyn's Caribbean Pride and Art Culture
A growing community, Crown Heights boasts lots to see and do. Popular spots include its museums, such as the Brooklyn Museum or the Weeksville Heritage Center, its recreation options like Brower Park, Propspect Park, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and the Brooklyn Public Library. A retail hub has also emerged around Franklin Avenue, with trendy cocktail bars, beer halls, and local food vendors. Running east-to-west across the neighborhood, the tree-lined Eastern Parkway is the route of Labor Day's West Indian American Day Parade.

Crown Heights is known for its historic two-to-four story row houses, and some newer condos have been built in the past few years too. The area is very accessible from the rest of Manhattan as well. Crown Heights' mix of rich heritage and commercial establishments makes it a favorite among its busy and vibrant residents.

Crown Heights — 6.8/10 Rating (based on 8 neighborhood reviews)
The area is an up and coming neighborhood of Brooklyn. There are a lot of bars and restaurants in the neighborhood but still affordable. It can be a little dicey at night as it changes block by block. A train is very near by and in the recent years as gotten pretty crowded as the neighborhood has gained popularity

This area of Crown Heights is very close to public transportation. There are numerous bars and restaurants on the other side of Eastern Parkway, as well as a few beginning to open just south of it.

Residential area with restaurants, bars, grocery stores (real ones!), and laundromats. Close to the park, library, botanical gardens, Brooklyn Museum, and many train options. Good for both those with roommates and those with kids. 40 minute commute to campus.

Close to the 2/5, semi-safe. On the brink of gentrification, which is bittersweet. Terrible grocery store (Associated), decent restaurants, good people. Close to Prospect Park.
