Located just south of downtown Brooklyn, Cobble Hill has become famous for its massive collection of restaurants on its three major commercial corridors. High-end dining and shopping has spread from trendy Court Street and laid-back Smith Street to Atlantic Avenue, where stylish restaurants sit next to popular Middle-Eastern grocery stores.
Just off the commercial avenues is a dense grid of quiet side streets where new luxury townhouses rise against renovated brownstone classics.
West of Henry Street, housing becomes more modest, but New York Harbor, plied by sailboats and ferries, comes into view. The entire neighborhood is convenient to Manhattan by the F line of the Subway.
