Carroll Gardens Reviews
Charming neighborhood! There are many amazing Italian restaurants, local coffee shops, beautiful tree-lined streets, large grocery stores and more! It is a more quiet part of Brooklyn, but still an easy commute into the city if you want crazy nightlife opportunities. You are a short walk from Brooklyn Bridge Park, Park Slope, and other large outdoor spaces to walk your dog or go for a run. There are several subway stops as well as bus stops to make it easy to get around. It is a safe neighborhood. The neighborhood is Brooklyn's best kept secret.
I have lived in Carroll Gardens for 17 years (my entire life) and I absolutely love it. The neighborhood is no stranger to the forces of gentrification, but is still a lively historic neighborhood with tons of character. Historically Italian, you'll find no shortage of small Italian bakeries other Italian owned shops. Smith and Court streets provide trendy restaurants from Greek to Korean BBQ, as well as many areas to shop clothing and home. Carroll Gardens is also one of the safest neighborhoods in my experience. I find CG is very fairly distanced from other nearby neighborhoods, and has great access to the F and G subway lines. My family doesn't own property, but has been renting the same 5th floor apartment for nearly 25 years. I love my neighborhood more everyday, and feel very lucky and proud to have grown up in such a friendly, calm, and deeply rich neighborhood, that will forever be a part of my history.
This neighborhood feels like home. As you walk through the neighborhood you will find Italian bakeries, amazing parks, and delicious restaurants. Everyone who lives here knows each other and will give a friendly "hello" as they see you.
