Even though Cobble Hill is in Northwest Brooklyn, don’t be surprised if you hear old-timers call this neighborhood of serene brownstones “South Brooklyn” — because Cobble Hill was once south of the city of Brooklyn, where Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn are today. In fact, Cobble Hill’s one-way streets, bluestone sidewalks, and turn-of-the-century buildings, now mostly co-ops, give you the sensation of having slipped back a century or two. Apartments are often brownstone floor-throughs, many with renovated baths and kitchens.
