Considered Brooklyn's largest African-American community, this historic area features twelve blocks of bay-fronted townhouses that look the same as they did in the late 19th century.

This is another great Brooklyn Neighborhood, but unless you have friends who live here, or unless you're coming for a very specific event, it's not worth the extra trip. Listen, every neighborhood in Brooklyn is great and has it's own personality, but if you're on...More
