About Mill Basin
Mill Basin use to be an island unto itself in the South region of Brooklyn all the way up to the turn of the century. A series of islands spotted in huts, frameworks tide-mills, this waterfront neighborhood originally served as an agricultural region for Manhattan. But in the 1920’s and 1940’s, Mill Basin had itself a housing boom and hasn’t looked back since.
While Mill Basin may be one of Brooklyn’s quieter areas, it doesn’t shortcut residents on quality. The neighborhood’s school system is one of New York’s best ranking top in both math and reading scores citywide. Additionally, Mill Basin’s green spaces have recently undergone substantial renovations adding ball fields and leisurely areas alike. This lively Brooklyn neighborhood entertains with restaurants, bars and cafes, as well as a library and move screens. But for a truly unique offering, it’s is home to the Kings Plaza Shopping Center and Marina. There are over 130 stores with more expecting to open, as well as a 160 slip marina.
