Carroll Gardens

A quiet and charming neighborhood boasting beautiful brownstone row houses, is a popular place to live among men and women of all ages and backgrounds.  The area’s diverse population reflects a unique blend of historic Italian-American influences and the more recent influx of young professional residents.

Not far from the big city yet possessing a decidedly peaceful atmosphere, Carroll Gardens is best known for the front gardens which gave it its name.  Stretching 30 to 40 feet in front of brownstones in the Historic District and bordered by tall trees, these gardens are precious to city dwellers and consequently in high demand.  Another reminder of nature’s beauty can be found at Carroll Park, between President and Carroll Streets.  The playground-strewn area offers tranquil walkways and benches, creating an ideal setting for an afternoon stroll.

Carroll Gardens Real Estate is bordered by Degraw Street to the north, Hamilton Avenue to the south, and Columbia and Smith Streets to the east and west.  Smith Street, sometimes called the “restaurant row,” provides the vast majority of shops and eateries in this neighborhood.  Traditional family-owned restaurants are plentiful, but there are also numerous cafes and boutiques to explore.

The Carroll Gardens branch of the Brooklyn Public Library has existed at its current location on the corner of Clinton Street and Union Street since 1905 and serves as an excellent resource for the community.  Several historic churches and the Old Smith Theater also reside in this neighborhood.

Carroll Gardens is served primarily by the F/G subway line, and the R is also accessible at Smith and 9th Streets.
