Cobblestones pave many of the quaint, tree-lined streets of this mostly landmarked, pocket-sized yet vibrant neighborhood. While beautifully maintained brownstones on residential streets define much of Cobble Hill, at its borders it shares commercial stretches with neighboring Brooklyn Heights, Boerum Hill and Carroll Gardens. An eclectic mix of hip, inviting eateries and boutiques interspersed with generations-old barbershops and meat markets give the area a comfortable, laid-back vibe. On the corner of Atlantic Ave. and Court St. is popular grocery chain Trader Joe’s.
Cobble Hill attracts families as well as professionals across the age and industry spectrum who join long time residents of Dutch, Swedish, English, Native American, and Italian descent. Besides single family and multi-family brownstones, there are some boutique apartment buildings. Prices are higher than average for this coveted Brooklyn neighborhood, keeping it in line with the surrounding neighborhoods.
