Carroll Gardens is a neighborhood that encompasses a large part of Northern Brooklyn. The boundaries are the Brooklyn Queens Expressway to the east, the Gowanus Expressway to the south, DeGraw street to the north, and the Gowanus Canal to the west. A formerly Italian enclave, the neighborhood has recently gained popularity as a hip place for young people who many have been priced out of nearby Park Slope. One of the draws of Carroll Gardens are the large front gardens many of the beautiful townhouses feature. The neighborhood has many breathtakingly beautiful streets; President Street typifies the charming Carroll Gardens block and is worth a stroll if you’d like to check out the neighborhood. Brooklyn restaurateurs have taken a liking to Carroll Gardens, turning Smith Street into a foodie’s dream. Hot-to-trot Battersby, which serves up inventive New American cuisine to those lucky enough to snag a table, rubs elbows with old-school Italian spots like Vinny’s, a go-to for a rich red sauce fix. The nightlife is anchored around this street as well, with Court Street featuring some great bars to sidle up to for a cheap pint or crafted cocktail. Transportation to Carroll Gardens is an easy 20 minutes to lower Manhattan via the F train. The G runs through the area as well, for those looking to head into different part of Brooklyn. Drivers will love the easy access to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and Gowanus Expressway. By Merritt Duncan
