Cobble Hill

Brooklyn

Click 's to Rate!

One of Brooklyn’s most charming neighborhoods is Cobble Hill! Located close to Boerum Hill and Carroll Gardens, the entire region has gotten the recent nickname of BoCoCa, though the three areas are distinct. Cobble Hill runs from Degraw St. and Atlantic Ave., between Court St. and Hicks St. Though small, the neighborhood is packed with charming brownstones and plenty of attractive boutiques, restaurants and bars. La Vara (www.lavarany.com) is one of Brooklyn’s few Michelin-starred eateries, serving exquisite tapas with Moorish and Jewish influences. Atlantic Avenue’s Colonie serves farm-fresh fare, with menus changing daily depending on what Chef Andrew Whitcomb receives from his local producers. Brucie, perhaps best known for their Beyoncé-themed Valentine’s feast in 2014 is also a hot spot for homemade pasta. Its takeout lasagna-by-the-tray is always a solid dinner party option. Any stroll down Smith or Court St. can lead to great shopping finds and perhaps chatting with a friendly neighbor. Cobble Hill Park at Congress St. and Clinton St. is a small green space popular with families and dogs alike. Very family-oriented thanks to spacious homes, Cobble Hill is also a celebrity hot spot (also thanks to high priced townhouses) – look for Norah Jones brunching in the area! BookCourt, the neighborhood bookstore, is home to a slew of readings and other literary events and has become a community hotspot for readers in surrounding neighborhoods as well.
