“Neat neighborhood”
Review of Fort Greene

Ranked #38 of 254 things to do in Brooklyn
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 March 2018

I love walking up and down Fulton mainly - a great bookstore - some good shops - a dynamic crowd on Friday and Saturday nights. Lots of good pockets. Love walking in Fort Greene Park. Not sure I would go there as a destination, as much as part of a visit to that part of Brooklyn

Back in the day this was not a good place. Now with gentrification it is a viable place to live and visit. there are many cool shops, cafes and restaurants now.

A neighborhood with attitude. Lives up to its cool reputation! Busy, funky, full of culture and self-consciously cool people.

This is a trendy Brooklyn town. Great brownstones, parks, and good eats up and down Dekalb Ave that spills out into Fulton Mall (Junior's)
