Squeezed between the similarly charming (and high-ranking) neighborhoods of Carroll Gardens and Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill offers the best of both of those worlds. Smith and Court Streets are among the most interesting and diverse retail corridors in the city, and the housing stock is superb, with beautiful and well-maintained nineteenth-century homes and plenty of modern amenities. Popular restaurants include Lucali, Frankies 457, Buttermilk Channel, Prime Meats, Cafe LuLuc, and Cafe Cubana, among many others.
Some wonderful food markets include Union Market (gourmet), Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Park Natural Foods, Stinky Brooklyn and numerous bakeries, coffee bars, and wine shops. In addition, on Sundays, there is a wonderful outdoor farmer's market just 2 blocks away.
The F and G trains are 1 block away, and a 10 minute walk will take you to the A, C, N, R, 2, 3, 4 and 5 trains. In addition, there is a public city bus that stops on our corner.
We're on a quiet tree-lined block, and you'll have a great deal of peace, quiet and privacy in our downstairs quarters. You'll have access to our beautiful garden - an oasis in the heart of Brooklyn!
No smoking, no pets.
