Welcome to Carroll Gardens
WHAT TO EXPECT
Diverse dining and shopping options, parks, and culture options come nights and weekends.
Independently upscale. Carroll Gardens is packed with cozy boutiques and artisanal food shops rather than extensions of shops you’ll find on Madison Avenue or in downtown Manhattan.
WHAT NOT TO EXPECT
An easy commute to east Manhattan above 14th Street, or a late-night party scene.
Multi-unit brownstones and an increasing number of high-rise developments.
YOU'LL FALL IN LOVE WITH
The picture-esque curb appeal and thriving, diverse small business scene.
LOCATED IN BROOKLYN
Around the Block
A classic pace of life that's teeming with style.
Originally named for Declaration of Independence signer Charles Carroll, Carroll Garden’s cultural history spans most of western Europe -- from Irish and Norwegian-Americans, who settled here throughout the first half of the 19th century, to a mid-century Italian-American influx, and finally, a late 1990s wave of French immigrants. It’s history may sound typical, but in a sea of “trendy Brooklyn ‘hoods”, Carroll Gardens remains an anomaly for one vital reason: newcomers remain notoriously committed to preserving -- and supporting -- the communities that first called it home.
