Crown Heights is an enclave of coexisting cultures, where quintessential New York stoop-life is still very much in practice, and a community-oriented vibe is greatly valued. Located in central Brooklyn, Crown Heights is known for its large Caribbean community, and is home to a notable Lubavitcher Hasidic population as well. Much of the area is landmarked, consisting of verdurous row house-lined streets and beautiful examples of grandiose architecture. On the residential front, property values are on the rise, primarily because working professionals have taken notice of the friendly atmosphere and affordability. Although the landscape consists primarily of townhouses, there are condo development projects in the works to accommodate this increasing popularity.
The neighborly vibe weaves through the Crown Heights commercial district as well, which offers locally owned Kosher eateries, boutiques, and cozy dessert shops & cafes. There are several parks and playgrounds to enjoy in the area, and the beautiful Brooklyn Botanic Garden and expansive Prospect Park are nearby-- both at the neighborhood's western border. The beautiful Beaux-Arts Brooklyn Museum attracts art lovers, and the Brooklyn Children’s Museum presents great activities for young families. Since commuting is convenient, work and play are both covered, with the area being well connected to other parts of Brooklyn and Manhattan.
