About Carroll Gardens Real Estate
When you want true peace and quiet, then you’ve found the right neighborhood. Carroll Gardens has become a Brooklyn favorite of both locals and tourists alike. Picture tree-lined streets leading to boutiques, hip bars, restaurants and gardens around every turn.
Originally considered part of Red Hook in South Brooklyn, Carroll Gardens broke away and began forming its own identity in 1960. Carroll Garden gets its namesake from the only Roman Catholic to sign the Declaration of Independence, Charles Carroll, as well as from its front gardens flowing blooming through the yard of its brownstone residences. The neighborhood was settled by Irish immigrants in the 19th century, soon followed by Norwegians and later Italians.
In the 1990’s, Carroll Gardens Real Estate went through a transformation. A couple of trendy restuarants opened up on Court and Smith Street, leading to a boom in commercial real estate that continues to feel its effects to this day. Since the 90’s boom, Carroll Gardens Real Estate has transformed into a hub of activity for this side of Brooklyn. “The Heart of Downtown Rebirth” and “Brooklyn’s Upper East Side” are just some of the nicknames its garnered over the years thanks to the BoCoCa resurgence.
Carroll Gardens Real Estate – Transportation
Carroll Gardens is known for its peace and quiet – and there’s a reason for it. Getting to the area is a little less convenient than other parts of Brooklyn. Only the F and G train will get you there, but it’s a simple, direct ride right into the city. Above ground, the B61 and B57 line services Caroll Gardens by bus.
