      Get to know Crown Heights

      South of Atlantic Avenue (and Bed-Stuy) and east of Prospect Park, Crown Heights includes a huge swath of central Brooklyn. The neighborhood is often associated with two communities: a Caribbean community (which tends to be most concentrated in the northern half) and a Hasidic one (largely to the south and east, especially in the blocks around Kingston Avenue and south of Eastern Parkway). That said, these demographic boundaries aren’t strictly defined, and part of the appeal of Crown Heights is that it isn’t uncommon to find a bakery selling Jamaican patties next to one selling kosher pastries. Other New Yorkers also find a welcome here, including an increasing number of, for lack of a better term, hipsters. Crown Heights’ changing demographics have led to a number of new restaurants and bars, concentrated along Franklin Avenue and, to a lesser extent, Washington, the western boundary of Crown Heights.
