Runs from Court St to Fourth Avenue, with Degraw Street as its southern boundary and Atlantic, Hoyt & Fulton streets forming its border with downtown.

Known for its row houses built between 1840 and 1870, Boerum Hill has plenty of condos too. The Boerum Hill neighborhood is extremely convenient to many of Brooklyn’s top attractions such as the Brooklyn Academy of Music — it’s just south of the borough’s downtown — and its central location and distinctive charm have attracted many buyers and renters.

More The Boerum Hill Historic District, an irregularly shaped area bounded by Hoyt, Nevins, Pacific and Wyckoff Streets, has many gorgeous row homes that were built in the 1850s, during the building boom that followed the start of regular Manhattan-to-Brooklyn ferry service in 1836. (Dean Street in Boerum Hill was featured in Jonathan Lethem’s Brooklyn novel “The Fortress of Solitude.”) Some of these early Victorian townhouses have been lovingly renovated, and many of the Boerum Hill brownstones are duplexes, with the owner living in one unit and renting out the other. Newer condos in Boerum Hill often feature outdoor space such as terraces in addition to their open kitchens and oversized windows. For a green oasis in Boerum Hill, there’s the community garden on Hoyt Street, and for a pint, you can stop by the Brooklyn Inn, where the carved wooden bar came over from Germany in the 1870s. Meanwhile, Smith Street on the edge of Boerum Hill is Brooklyn’s restaurant row. Grocery serves seasonal favorites, and Restaurant Saul is known for its baked Alaska with a chocolate-cookie crust.

"The Village" of Boerum Hill

This cozy, landmarked Brooklyn neighborhood is bound by Schermerhorn, 4th Ave, Court and Warren. It is perhaps best known for its mid-19th century townhouses. Home to many acclaimed writers, Jonathan Lethem set two of his most popular novels here.
