With beautiful tree-and brownstone-lined streets, historic buildings, convenient transportation access, and a renowned performing arts center, Fort Greene is becoming one of Brooklyn’s most desirable residential neighborhoods. Fort Greene Park, created in 1848 at the instigation of poet/newspaper editor Walt Whitman, is now crowded with tennis players, joggers, and dog lovers, all sharing the scenic spot of greenery. The park was planned by notable landscape architects Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, designers of Central Park.
