Living in Boerum Hill
Historic Brooklyn mingles with modern comforts in Boerum Hill. Close to bustling downtown Brooklyn's shops and services, it offers a swift commute into Manhattan. Busy transit hub Atlantic Terminal is at its north-eastern tip and trains from there will get you to Times Square in 30 minutes. Yet there's a small-town atmosphere that pervades Boerum Hill's secluded, tree-lined streets. Like neighboring Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill enjoys a laid-back lifestyle. It retains its Victorian-era brick-and-brownstone architecture while welcoming a balanced blend of modern, independent boutiques and restaurants. Old-world charm abounds here, whether it's in the outdoor terraces of Smith Street's French bistros or the gabled row-houses in the historic district.
