Fort Green is, as we can imagine, an American Revolutionary War fort which was built in 1776 under the supervision of General Nathanael Greene of Rhode Island. This General Greene worked together with General George Washington during the Battle of Long Island in 1776. Fort Greene Park, originally called "Washington Park" In 1864, Fort Greene Park was redesigned.
You will find in Fort Greene many examples of mid-19th century Italianate and Eastlake architecture, most of which is well preserved and beautifull to look at.. There are many tree-lined streets and very elegant low-rise housing. Fort Greene has also a little tower, the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower, which, for over 80 years, was the tallest building in Brooklyn. The neighborhood is close to the Atlantic Terminal railway station and has access to many subway services.

Subway:
Line „Q“ to DeKalbStr.
Line „C“ Lafayette Avenue

Pleasant to spend some time walking there. It is hilly so good views of surrounding buildings, though Manhattan largely hidden by trees. Small museum in the centre.

Fort Greene is a classic Brooklyn neighborhood with tree-and-brownstone-lined blocks and home of the Brooklyn Academy of Music and locally-owned restaurants and shops. However, in recent years it has become overdeveloped and an influx of new, former Manhattan residents has made Fort Greene one of the most expensive places in Brooklyn to live.
