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.

Beautiful neighborhood - very safe, kid-friendly, with tons to do! I have lived here my entire life and I love Carrol Gardens with all my heart
This is a great neighborhood for families. It's quiet, has lots of parks, and schools. The F and G trains are nearby, which gets me everywhere I need to go in the city. Plus, we have Trader Joe's and Whole Foods.
