    From turn of the century wealth to a diverse community that benefits from its central location. Crown Heights was one of Brooklyn’s wealthiest neighborhoods at the start of the 20th century — and has the grand architecture to prove it. In the 1930s the newly opened A train brought a wave of residents from Harlem. Today it’s the prices and new developments that draw a steady stream of working professionals looking for space and easy commutes to Manhattan. Bisected by Eastern Pkwy. — which was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted of Central and Prospect Park fame — the area is now dominated by multi-family homes and features a great mix of businesses and dining options.

  • Hey readers! Let me tell you an interesting fact about crown heights south. 1. It’s close to beautiful natural sites: Living in a city this large, one might expect to feel surrounded by concrete jungles. And to be sure, there are miles after miles of shops and residences here. But one is also not that far away from some of Brooklyn’s most beautiful spaces to view nature. Prospect Park is one of the true gems in Brooklyn, a 526-acre expanse of green space designed by the same designers responsible for Manhattan’s Central Park. Located just west of Crown Heights, Prospect Park also features some other attractions worth seeing. You can visit the Prospect Park Zoo, see the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, or browse the farmer’s market at the Grand Army Plaza. 2. It’s home to beautiful homes: One won’t find a lot of generic tract homes or sterile apartment complexes here as you might find in the suburbs. Instead, most of the homes here are Victorian brownstones, many complete with front stoops for sitting and greeting neighbors. If one wants to rent an apartment, chances are pretty good that it will be in one of these historic, architecturally beautiful buildings. With so much going on in Crown Heights, it’s clear that this is a fun and exciting place to be. #intresting #crownheights
