Living in Cobble Hill
Sandwiched between Carroll Gardens and Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill has its own distinct personality. A sizeable population of French expats, cobblestone streets and charming wine bars lend it an old-world atmosphere. Independent boutiques and trendy cocktail bars line Court Street, and Cobble Hill Park is a small yet perfectly formed square of greenery. The main commercial arteries of Atlantic Avenue and Court Street deliver a wealth of diverse and interesting businesses. Off the main drag, life is quiet and serene in Cobble Hill. Neighbors gather in shared backyards or front stoops in good weather, and the sidewalks feature mature trees swaying in the river breezes.
