There are few neighbhorhoods in Brooklyn, or in greater New York City, that remain largely “as they were”. By this I mean little affected by any building boom from the post World War II era forward. I would guess that this is due in large part to landmarking and historic preservation efforts.
I’m talking about….drumroll…the Carroll Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn. I noticed that the newer construction that I did see matched in tone and height to the rest of the block.
Of course all of this tree lined historical beauty comes with a whopping price tag, but even if you can’t afford it, you can walk the streets with a camera.
I hope you enjoy the results of my walk! For more on Caroll Gardens, click here.
