Boerum Hill

A Balance of Brick, Brownstones, and Brooklyn
Boerum Hill is a small and relaxed neighborhood of Brooklyn. It has an urban energy to it but feels more intimate. Residents here are fond of peaceful strolls, laid-back shopping, and cozy dining. Popular restaurants include Mile End and Rucola, and the historic Brooklyn Inn is frequently packed with drinking crowds. The Barclays Center is only a walk away for concerts and sporting events, and the green expanse of the Brooklyn Bridge Park is great for running.

The quiet, tree-lined streets of Boerum Hill are dotted with impressive 19th-century architecture. Brownstones and brick townhouses are common in this comfortable, residential neighborhood. Boerum Hill's multiple subway and train access and its centrality make it easy to travel to any other part of Brooklyn and Manhattan.

Boerum Hill — 9.3/10 Rating (based on 6 neighborhood reviews)
Great restaurants and best transit access in the city (walking distance to 13 different Subway lines). Neighborhood is relatively expensive for Brooklyn, but the prices in the neighborhood seem commensurate with the excellent transit access.

Close to all trains in downtown Brooklyn. Good mix of local shops and restaurants and bigger convenient stores. Easy jog to Brooklyn Bridge Promenade for good views/running. Centrally located between all the Brooklyn neighborhoods. Love it.
