Downtown Brooklyn serves as the borough’s civic and commercial center. The area is known for its historic brownstones and attractive new apartment buildings, providing diverse residential options. Its skyscrapers rising behind Brooklyn Heights form a classic 20th century cityscape. People in business attire enter and exit the marble office buildings during business hours, but the neighborhood noticeably settles down after the clock strikes five. Practically every subway line in Brooklyn stops here, so getting to the city is simple. The neighborhood is home to The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), and the construction of the Atlantic Yards project has brought the Nets, professional basketball team, to Brooklyn.
