Fort Greene | Brooklyn

Quick Profile

Conveniently situated just north of the beautiful and lush Prospect Park, Fort Greene is rich with history. Representative of an aesthetic that Brooklyn is often associated with--the brownstone and row house architecture being an institution of the community--Fort Greene is decidedly singular in visual style. As part of the National Register of Historic Places, this South Brooklyn neighborhood offers unique charm and plenty of character.

Beginning with its early military-oriented inception (the territory was central to the Battle of Long Island), Fort Greene has always been recognized for its spaciousness and a sense of openness. Filled with nature and greenery, it is also home to its very own eponymously named park in addition to being in close proximity to Brooklyn’s largest recreational area, Prospect Park (containing the beloved Prospect Park Zoo within it). 

Many residents come from different socioeconomic backgrounds and commute to their workplaces in Manhattan, while keeping Fort Greene as their separate haven. The diversity of the area has proven to be one of the few examples of a Brooklyn neighborhood maintaining its roots in part thanks to its protected status.
