Downtown Brooklyn is a neighborhood in transition. Currently home to just over 7,000 residents, recent construction has brought thousands more living units into the area, which is predicted to grow rapidly in the coming years. Bordering Brooklyn Heights and DUMBO, this central district is close enough to the waterfront to appreciate the Brooklyn Bridge yet also packed with attractions to lure neighbors into the area. Adams St. and Jay St. are the main thoroughfares, with plenty of restaurants and shopping. The Brooklyn Courthouse and the adjacent Cadman Plaza is a main destination, with several office buildings housing major corporations as well as recent tech startups. The Metrotech Center, the nation's largest urban university-industry science and technology park.and Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower, a prominent office tower and architectural gem, make the neighborhood the third biggest for business in all of NYC. Dining options abound. Shake Shack is a must for anyone in need of a good burger. Ganso, a Japanese ramen restaurant is usually packed at lunchtime – and for good reason! Hill Country Barbecue Market and Chicken, a spin-off of a popular Manhattan restaurant, is a dinner destination, often hosting live music or comedy to go with spectacular Southern-style food. Hungry Ghost is the local’s go-to coffee shop, providing ample laptop space and superb hot drinks. The 2, 3, 4, 5, B, D, N, Q, R, A, C, F trains all go to the neighborhood, making it ideal for commuters. Downtownbrooklyn.com is a great resource for anyone looking for events, deals or just general information in the neighborhood. By Melissa Kravitz
