Corner cafes, cinemas, fire escapes and stoops—such is the streetscape in Cobble Hill. Known for its mom-and-pop shops, Italian meat markets, and boutique shopping, Cobble Hill fits in with its Brooklyn neighbors along Smith Street, Carroll Gardens and Boerum Hill. A little bit trendy and a little bit hip, this neighborhood preserves an approachable atmosphere in a picturesque NYC setting.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
Cobble Hill's Suburban Perch
Cobble Hill is a great neighborhood bordering Brooklyn Heights and Carroll Gardens - all of which are filled with quaint and award winning restaurants (Sushi, Thai, Irish pubs, Americana you name it), shops, French cafes and parks. Admire the 1800s architecture as you stroll through this historic neighborhood - you may even decide to spend the day exploring this area rather than venture into Manhattan."
Strolling the Town Along Smith and Court Streets
Cobble Hill in Brooklyn is a wonderful area: very family friendly, great shops and restaurants (our kids loved Moo Burger!). Brooklyn Bridge Park is close by, with its epic playgrounds like the Water Lab. And Manhattan is easy to access via the subway."

Exposed Brick and Organic Everything
One of my favorite neighborhoods in Brooklyn--so close to a handful of train lines and steps away from great food, bars and shopping!"

Jacob Krupnick is a director and photographer from Brooklyn. In 2011, he released the feature-length dance film "Girl Walk // All Day", a non-stop music video shot entirely in the streets of NYC. Since then, he’s spent his time creating one-of-a-kind, immersive screening experiences all over the world. Shooting for Airbnb was a great excuse for Jacob to wander the city with a camera in hand, thinking about what best defines the feel of a neighborhood.
