Fort Greene Retail Space

Educating Brooklyn’s finest

Just a beat away from the hustle and bustle of Downtown Brooklyn lies the quieter, tree-lined neighborhood of Fort Greene. Named for the lush and historic park that anchors this diverse stretch of land, Fort Greene delivers an eclectic mix of bars, eateries, and small businesses, with Fulton Avenue serving as the cultural and retail corridor of town. This neighborhood is home to the Brooklyn Academy of Music and Brooklyn Flea’s flagship location, family-friendly attractions that invite lots of weekend foot traffic from surrounding areas.

Fort Greene is also home to a diverse group of professionals, artists, and working-class New Yorkers who are inspired by the neighborhood’s mellow atmosphere and picturesque construction. The community’s diversity is evident in its Fort Greene commercial retail space, which includes a mix of casual eateries, hip bars, and indie shops, many of which line DeKalb and Myrtle Avenues. According to locals, Fort Greene is one of the city’s best under-the-radar dining destinations, with a mix of old and new, casual and fancy.
