Quirky Bushwick is quickly becoming one of Brooklyn's most desirable neighborhoods for creative twenty and thirty-somethings. Located deep in the heart of Brooklyn, Bushwick stretches from Flushing Avenue to Broadway to the Queens border to the Evergreen Cemetery.

Within Bushwick's 1.305 square miles, is a thriving bar and restaurant scene. It seems like a new bar opens up practically every week meaning there's never a shortage of places to hit up with your friends and you'll quickly discover your go-to happy hour spot. Make sure you keep your iPhone handy when you're wandering around. You'll find some of the city's best street art in the neighborhood. Local resident, Joe Ficalora, started inviting street artists to paint on the walls of his business several years ago. Since then he's worked with street artists and other property owners to create even more murals throughout Bushwick.

While many residents seem to have their own bikes that they use to get around the area, there are also a few CitiBike locations in the neighborhood. If you're heading further outside the area, the J, M and L serve Bushwick.

Ready to make the move to Bushwick? Keeping with its artsy reputation, you'll find lots of converted lofts in former factory buildings up for rent and if you've ever dreamed of having a garden or even a grill there are plenty of Bushwick apartments that come with their own outdoor space. Check out our exclusive listings below.


Busting at the seams with indie music, cool eats and boutiques galore, Williamsburg is easily the hippest neighborhood in all of New York City. While Williamsburg is known for setting many of the trends that catch-on throughout the city and the country, living in the neighborhood is all about embracing your individuality.

Whether you want to treasure hunt for vintage goods, listen to live music, eat at the trendiest restaurants or do all your grocery shopping at a farmers market, you'll find your spot and your tribe in the neighborhood. During the summer months, you'll find practically the entire neighborhood at the riverfront stuffing themselves with the creative food of Smorgasburg. Each Saturday you can pair food from local restaurants with local wine and spirits from the wineries and spirit distilleries that have popped up in Williamsburg in recent years.

Keep in mind, Williamsburg might be in Brooklyn but this neighborhood is anything but serene. This is the neighborhood you want to live in if you're a creative type that thrives on constantly being on the go. Williamsburg is served by the G, J, M, Z and L subway lines and the East River Ferry connects North and South Williamsburg to downtown and midtown Manhattan.

Ready to make the move to Williamsburg? Whether you want a walk a walk-up, a row home or want to live in a luxury high-rise condo on the waterfront, the neighborhood has it. Check out our exclusive listings below.


Tucked in the northernmost part of Brooklyn, Greenpoint is a secluded gem of a neighborhood. What the area lacks in commutability (newbies to Greenpoint quickly develop a love/hate relationship with the G line) it more than makes up for with its communal atmosphere and some of the best food in the city.

Technically speaking, Greenpoint runs from North 14th Street, Nassau Avenue and McGuinness Boulevard to Newtown Creek to the East River. Getting to and from the area requires taking the G train to either Nassau Avenue or Greenpoint Avenue. If you like to walk, taking the L to Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg and walking 15-minutes. For quick access into Manhattan, the best bet is the East River ferry which will take you to East 34th Street within six minutes.

Of course once you're in Greenpoint you'll never want to leave, especially if you're a foodie. You'll find everything from delicious perogies (thanks to the neighborhood's longtime Polish residents), to pizza and restaurants where you'll swear you've left New York for Paris. Seafood lovers will quickly become familiar with Greenpoint Point Fish & Lobster Co., which serves as both a seafood market and restaurant. The neighborhood is also safer and cheaper than many of Brooklyn's hotspots, with some of the city's best public schools.

Ready to make the move to Greenpoint? You'll find converted warehouses and loft apartments with killer views of downtown Manhattan's skyline, as well as old-school townhouses full of charm. Check out our exclusive listings below.

Crown Heights

There's an energy about Crown Heights you won't find anywhere else in the city. The central Brooklyn neighborhood spans from Washington Avenue on the west, Atlantic Avenue on the north, Ralph Avenue on the east and Empire Boulevard/East New York avenue on the south.

Known for its strong small business community, more and more restaurants and boutiques have been opening up in the area in recent years helping to add to the already familiar atmosphere of Crown Heights. No matter where you live in NYC, you should check out the annual Labor Day Carnival, one of the largest street fairs in New York City that takes place every September on the Eastern Parkway.

One of our favorite things in Crown Heights, however, isn't a business or a festival but the Imani Community Garden. The 4,000-square-foot-garden is a little piece of paradise in the middle of the bustling city. The garden is home to at least 25 chickens and a four-story willow tree that just calls out to have a picnic underneath it.

With four lines (2, 3, 4, 5) serving the area and multiple subway stations, getting to and from Crown Heights is a snap.

Thinking of making the move to Crown Heights? The area is one of the most affordable in Brooklyn, although rents and sale prices are raising. Around Nostrand Avenue and the Eastern Parkway you'll find condo and apartment buildings but the area is mostly known for its streets lined with two or three story row houses that come with great stoops for sitting out on. Check out our exclusive listings below.

Bed Stuy

First things first, no one uses the name Bedford–Stuyvesant, it's Bed-Stuy (pronounced Bed-Stuy). Now that we got that straightened out...Bed-Stuy is a north central Brooklyn neighborhood worth considering moving to. This is especially true if you like funky areas with endless character.

The neighborhood of roughly 150,000 people is defined by Flushing Avenue in the north, Broadway in the east, Atlantic Avenue in the south and Classon Avenue in the west. Because of its location there are plenty of transportation options for Bed-Stuy residents. You'll find the A, C, G, J, M, and Z trains all making stops in the neighborhood as well as an LIRR station.

The area is often bustling with a vibrant restaurant and small business scene (fellow brunch lovers we'll see you at Golda) and newbies (in recent years this has included artists, young professionals and young families) will quickly find their tribe whether out at a cafe, at one of the community centers, during one of many block parties the block associations throw, at the old-fashioned community library or at church (Bed-Stuy is known for its tight-knit church groups).

Lovers of brownstones will feel right at home in the neighborhood. Historic Bed-Stuy is known for its streets lined with historic brownstones and even some Victorian homes. You'll find a mix of both renters and homeowners in the area. Ready to make the move to Bed-Stuy? Check our our exclusive listings below.

Park Slope

Even the name of this northwest Brooklyn neighborhood is dreamy: Park Slope. Tree-lined streets, charming well-maintained old brownstones, idyllic atmosphere—Park Slope is likely what you envision when you think family-friendly Brooklyn.

Prospect Park marks the east border of the neighborhood, which runs to Flatbush Avenue to the north, Fourth Avenue to the west and the Prospect Expressway to the south. Move here and the city is really your oyster. While it can take up to 45 minutes to get into Manhattan, depending on where you're going the F, G, 2, 3, 4, 5, D, N, R, W, B and Q subway trains all make stops at various stations throughout the neighborhood.

Long considered one of New York's most desirable areas to live in, the real estate market in Park Slope is often both competitive and pricey. But with good reason as once you've found your ideal Park Slope apartment you'll never want to leave the area. During the warmer months you can spend your Sundays taking your four-legged bestie to the dog pond in Prospect Park before heading over to Smorgasburg and dining on delicious eats from some 100 vendors. Park Slope is also home to a plethora of restaurants, bars and boutiques and despite the area's reputation for families with strollers (which there are a ton of) there's also a nice mix of young professionals and artists that call the area home.

Ready to make the move to Park Slope? You'll find brownstones and plenty of low-rise apartment buildings throughout the area as well as a full luxury apartment rentals popping up. Check out our exclusive listings below.

Fort Greene

Trendy without trying too hard, Fort Greene is one of the best Brooklyn neighborhoods for those that want an artsy, low-key small-town feel while still having easy access into the rest of the city.

Bordered west to east by Clermont Avenue to Flatbush Avenue and north to south by Flushing Avenue to Atlantic Avenue, the northwest Brooklyn neighborhood is accessible by both the G and C subway trains. And there's also a LIRR station in the area.

Fort Greene is known for its tree-lined public spaces, outdoor moving showings and Brooklyn Flea Market. Dog parents love taking their fur babies to pretty Fort Greene Park in the mornings. Wine aficionados quickly become regulars at Greene Grape Wine & Spirits and/or Thirst Wine Merchants. And history fiends find something new to discover simply by strolling around the charming streets. Fort Greene is a New York City–designated historic district with the oldest park in the city.

Ready to move to Fort Greene? Expect to find a lot rental options in the neighborhood but mostly in brownstones and row houses. There are a few luxury doorman hi-rises but not many. Check out our exclusive listings below.

East Williamsburg

If Brooklyn neighborhoods were generations, Williamsburg would be the millennials: the current obsession of everyone from the media to brands and East Williamsburg would be Generation Z: the less talked about, but up and coming cohort that will be soon have a bigger influence on politics, culture and more.

The boundaries of East Williamsburg are much like the neighborhood itself still being developed but in general it's considered the area border by Flushing Avenue to the southeast, Graham or even Union Avenue of the west and Metropolitan Avenue to the north. Located just a few stops off the L Train from Manhattan the area provides easy access to those going in and out of the city.

The neighborhood isn't as anywhere near as busy as Williamsburg and it’s still a little rough around the edges but move to East Williamsburg and you'll find plenty to do and an eclectic mix of restaurants, bars and shops. On weekend mornings you can grab a bagel at The Bagel Store, the original creator of the always Instagram worthy rainbow bagel before heading over to newly renovated Cooper Park that has a skate park, tennis courts, basketball courts, a dog park and a huge grassy area for simply sitting and reading a good book or having a picnic with friends.

Ready to live in East Williamsburg? Expect to find both artsy and tech industry young professionals in the neighborhood, giving the area a creative energy. In terms of housing, you'll mostly find row houses, mid-rise apartment buildings and warehouses converted into lofts. Check out our exclusive listings below.

Clinton Hill

Between its small-town neighborhood feel, plethora of coffee shops and restaurants and the less than 30-minute commute into Manhattan, Clinton Hill, (that's The Hill to locals) is one of the hottest Brooklyn neighborhoods for young professionals.

In many ways, the north-central Brooklyn area—it's bordered by Classon Avenue and Bedford-Stuyvesant to the east, Atlantic Avenue and Prospect Heights to the south, Vanderbilt Avenue and Fort Greene to the west and the Brooklyn Navy Yard to the north—is similar to Park Slope. But whereas Park Slope has more of a 30-and 40-something, family oriented crowd, Clinton Hill has a younger vibe. As home to the Pratt Institute, there is an almost constant influx of art into the neighborhood.

Both the G and the C subway lines serve the area, and while Clinton Hill is a quick commute into Manhattan, on your days off from work you'll never want to leave the area. Fort Greene Park is an easy walk for those looking for some nature, the nearby Barclay Center means there's almost always some form of live entertainment happening and locals never get tired of neighborhood's vibrant culinary scene. Some of Brooklyn Group's favorite restaurants include: Speedy Romeo (don't get full off of their wood-fired pizzas, you want to save room for their giant s'more dessert); Peck's for coffee and a quick meal; and Larina Pastificio & Vin when you want something a bit more upscale but still laid back.

Ready to move to Clinton Hill? The area's raising popularity means the rental market is both competitive and expensive. But you'll be able to find everything from charming, well-maintained brownstones, carriage houses and row houses to an increasing supply of condos and luxury apartment buildings. Check out Brooklyn Group's exclusive listings below.

Downtown Brooklyn

Business-centric Downtown Brooklyn may be known more for its professional vibe than its neighborhood feel, but don't let that fool you into not considering living in Downtown Brooklyn.

For starters, the Fulton Street Mall offers plenty of shopping and despite the area's business atmosphere, there are a good deal of small shops waiting for you to explore. Not to mention, Michelin-starred restaurants throughout the neighborhood. Two of our favorites are: Malai, a small-batch artisanal ice cream company, and Hill Country Barbecue Market for a some good old-fashioned comfort food.

Downtown Brooklyn is also home to a number cultural hotspots including the BRIC Arts Media House, the New York Transit Museum, The Theater for a New Audience and MetroTech Commons where you'll frequently find new art installations going in and live entertainment happening. And you can never beat a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge for the views.

By far one of the best things about living in Downtown Brooklyn is its accessibility. Thirteen, that's right 13 subway lines, stop in the area. It's possible to get to downtown Manhattan in 10 minutes.

Ready to move to Downtown Brooklyn? The area is known for its high-rise apartment buildings that come loaded with amenities like waterfront views, common spaces, state of the art gyms and more. Check out Brooklyn Group's exclusive listings below.


Simply put, Gowanus is cool. The South Brooklyn neighborhood is a mix of industrial spaces, new cultural spaces including spots for the arts and music as well as trendy restaurants.

You'll want to consider living in up-and-coming Gowanus if you like your urban space a little gritty, and prefer your art and people with a bit of an edge. Beer lovers will love being able to create their own craft beer tour: Other Half Brewing, Threes Brewing, and Strong Rope Brewery are all within walking distance of each other. If you're a fan of all things bread and pastry, Runner and Stone is one of the city's best kept secrets. Go for brunch, you won't be sorry. You can work off all that beer and food at one of the rock gyms that seem to keep popping up in the old warehouses.

Keep in the mind that due to area's industrial history you won't find much green space or trees in the neighborhoods. The Gowanus canal, which is now a Superfund site, however, is slowly being cleaned up and there's a park by the canal in the works. The neighborhood is also extremely walkable and getting to and from the area is fairly easy with the D, N, R, W and F and G subway trains all making stops in the area.

Ready to live in Gowanus? Keep in mind that available housing can be very limited. You'll find a mix of small row houses throughout the neighborhood and thanks to zoning changes condos and large apartment complexes are starting to crop up. Check out Brooklyn Group's exclusive listings below.

Prospect Heights

Tree-lined streets, museums galore, charming old brownstones—Prospect Heights is one of Brooklyn's prettiest neighborhoods.

It's also tiny. The area is bordered by Flatbush Avenue in the west, Atlantic Avenue in the north, Eastern Parkway (at Grand Army Plaza) in the south and Washington avenue in the east. It's a commuter's dream. There are 11 subway lines that serve the area and you can be in FiDi or Union Square in less than 30 minutes, midtown in less than 40.

Move to Prospect Heights and when you're not working you can spend your time exploring the Brooklyn Museum, the Botanic Gardens even the Brooklyn Public Library before dining at one of the area's many restaurants (Tom's diner is an institution). The neighborhood is also close to Prospect Park an ideal respite from city life. Keep in mind, however, that this is an increasingly bustling area. If you're seeking peace and quiet, it might not be for you unless you score an apartment on a side street.

Newcomers to Prospect Heights will have no trouble fitting into the area thanks to area's diversity. While in recent years there's been a influx of 30-somethings moving to the area, there's also a number of second and even third generation residents, everyone from small business owners to professors calling Prospect Heights home.

Ready to move to Prospect Heights? The area is known for its single-family buildings and brownstones, but you'll also find apartments in a number of walk-up buildings and the closer you get to Barclays Center the more likely you are to find an apartment in a hi-rise luxury building. Check out Brooklyn Group's exclusive listings below.


You say you want a homey vibe in the city? Consider moving to Ridgewood. Right over the border, Bushwick's Queens neighbor is known for its community atmosphere which it gets in part from the fact that there are a number of second and third generation residents living in the area and also from the large number of owner occupied residencies.

History surrounds you at every turn in Ridgewood. The area is home to three NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission Landmark Districts and tons of historic buildings including the oldest surviving stone-built Dutch Colonial house in the city, known as the Vander-Ende-Onderdonk House and the Ridgewood Theater Building. For green space the Ridgewood Reservoir is one of the prettiest spots in New York City. A walk, run or bike around the park will have you feeling like you're not even in the city. What you won't find in Ridgewood, however, is much of a nighttime scene but you'll be charmed by the old-fashioned shops, restaurants and bars that add to the neighborhood's cozy feel.

If you live in Ridgewood you quickly become familiar with the M subway train for commuting to and from Manhattan and the MTA's bus routes which are your best bet for getting to other parts of Queens and to and from Brooklyn.

Ready to live in Ridgewood? You'll find everything from recently renovated pre-war apartments to rowhomes to traditional 4 and 6-unit apartment buildings as well as a number of new apartment developments. Check out Brooklyn Group's exclusive listings below.
