Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn

4.6
#5 of 9 in Neighborhoods in Brooklyn
Carroll Gardens is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. Taking up around 40 city blocks, it is bounded by Degraw and Warren Streets (north), Hoyt and Smith Streets (east), Ninth Street or the Gowanus Expressway (south) and the Brooklyn Queens (BQE) and Gowanus Expressways (west). The neighborhoods that surround it are Cobble Hill to the northwest, Boerum Hill to the northeast, Gowanus to the east, Red Hook to the south and southwest, and the Columbia Street Waterfront District to the west.Originally considered to be part of South Brooklyn or, more specifically, Red Hook, the neighborhood started to have its own identity in the 1960s. The new name came from Charles Carroll, an Irish immigrant who was the only Roman Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence, and whose name was already attached to Carroll Street and Carroll Park. The name also reflects the large front gardens of brownstones in the Carroll Gardens Historic District and elsewhere in the neighborhood.

  • We wandered around this area for about an hour taking pictures and enjoying the views and homes. You will really enjoy this area. Not far from the subway stop too.  more »
  • Has all the imprint of the calsico neighborhood of Brooklyn, maintained intact building infrastructure, the gardens and the streets full of trees

  • On the day of departure we went again on a tour of discovery. It is easy to reach this area Metro to Caroll St. Here there is to admire beautiful homes and small businesses. We are still walking through red hook to the IKEA market went from there always on the water along to the Brooklyn Bridge. Exciting - but only for good skiers :-)

Where to stay in Brooklyn

To enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline and have easy foot access to most of the borough's major attractions, stay in Brooklyn's downtown area. The borough's main tourism district, this area offers both luxurious accommodations for visitors wishing to splurge during their stay, as well as more economical lodgings for those traveling on a limited budget. If you don’t mind driving or taking the subway to most tourist sites, consider one of the neighborhoods outside Brooklyn's central area, such as Williamsburg or Prospect Park.
