Cobble Hill is a quiet and charming neighborhood in a prime Brooklyn location close to Brooklyn Heights and Manhattan.  The streets are lined with characteristic row brownstones protected as part of the historic district and the sidewalks are shaded by beautiful trees.  This neighborhood is particularly popular among families with children but also attracts just about anybody seeking a peaceful haven within the hectic environment of New York City.

Cobble Hill Real Estate stretches north to south from Atlantic Avenue to Degraw Street and east to west from Court Street to Hicks Street.  Because of its proximity to Brooklyn Heights, the Borough Hall subway station, served by the 2/3, 4/5 and R trains, is very accessible.  The F train also serves Cobble Hill.

Brick and brownstone townhouses make up most of the housing in this neighborhood, some converted from former churches or schoolhouses.  There are still several Gothic churches remaining untouched, such as the St. Francis Cabrini Chapel, which dates from before the Civil War.

Court Street and Smith Street offer restaurants and cafes galore, with Smith Street known to many as the “restaurant row” in appreciation of the variety and quality of dining options found there.  On Court Street is the Cobble Hill Cinema, a family-run movie theater that offers discount prices and foreign films.  Atlantic Avenue represents an eclectic collection of Middle Eastern food spots, antique shops, and assorted independent stores.

Cobble Hill Park, also sometimes called Verandah Park, is a small but highly-regarded treasure with benches, picnic tables and a children’s playground.  The park hosts a music festival every summer and an annual Halloween parade.
