Boerum Hill Reviews

Beautiful neighborhood with a strong sense of community. The proximity to downtown Brooklyn and the accessibility to Manhattan makes this area an amazing place to live. As well as being in a nice area, it is very safe, full of kind people and is a beautiful, quiet part of Brooklyn that is surprising for how close it is to Downtown.
