With uniform tree-lined streets and classic brownstone charm, Cobble Hill is perhaps Brooklyn’s most picture-perfect neighborhood. Here you’ll find lots of young couples and families, many of whom wanted to leave Manhattan for quieter, more low-key living.
For shopping, there’s plenty of mom-and-pop stores, boutique shops, and authentic Italian eateries spread out across the neighborhood. Smith Street and Court Street are among the liveliest and most diverse retail corridors in all of NYC.
Alternatively, the neighborhood also has an extensive network of bike lanes and access to Citi Bike, New York’s bike-sharing program.
