Fort Greene, despite its proximity to BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) and Barclay Center, is home to quiet narrow streets, historic brownstones, rowhouses, and a few doorman and walk-up buildings. A trendy neighborhood, it’s filled with greenery like Fort Greene Park and cool spaces to visit like speakeasies and great restaurants. Fort Greene is also home to flea markets like Brooklyn Flea. The best part of the neighborhood? The utter diversity. A mix of economic, ethnic, and racial diversity infuses the neighborhood and helps to give it the life it has.
Located in northwestern Brooklyn, it is a transportation dream with access to thirteen trains, five buses, the LIRR, and easy access to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. You can also hit Times Square in under 30 minutes flat. For the parents that would rather keep their children closer to home, excellent schools like Brooklyn Technical High School (or Brooklyn Tech) and Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School are right in the neighborhood with easy access to other schools outside of Fort Greene.
