Mill Basin is a Brooklyn residential neighborhood on Jamaica Bay. It is bounded by Avenue U to the northwest, and the Mill Basin inlet on all other sides. One of the few neighborhoods in Brooklyn that constitute their own peninsula, Mill Basin was in fact built out by developers in 1906 by dredging up marshland and filling in waterways (Avenue U, in fact, used to just be a creek). The remote location of Mill Basin is reflected in it architecture. The area is composed of almost all single-family houses, with very few condos or co-ops. If you’re searching for a spot to flex your gardening skills next to an in ground pool, Mill Basin’s you’re best bet. The neighborhood can feel quite removed from the hustle and bustle of the city, and includes some sprawling mansions, including the most expensive property in Brooklyn, a compound of two houses valued at $30 million right on the water. There are some commercial strips for groceries and home-goods, but nightlife and restaurants are scant. Residents in Mill Basin ought to have a car as the nearest subway stop is a half-hour walk. Buses do run through the area, on a limited schedule. By Merritt Duncan
