Boerum Hill

Brooklyn’s heart of creativity and culture

With an old-world charm that resembles neighboring Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill has a relaxing, suburban quality that locals adore and visitors covet. The tree-lined streets are pleasant for strolling and often lead to a good meal at a cozy eatery or an interesting find at an indie shop. The majority of stores and restaurants are situated along Atlantic Avenue, the primary retail corridor, with multiple mixed-use developments popping up south of Atlantic Avenue.

Boerum Hill is home to multiple performing arts venues and even more art galleries. Its close proximity to Barclays Center gives the community a vibrant boost of energy, especially at night, and, in the warmer months, visitors are likely to stumble upon a street fair or lively outdoor performance. Boerum Hill is relaxed but retains a big city vibe, making it perfect for anyone who craves the intensity of concrete Manhattan but the cool ease of brownstone Brooklyn.
