Welcome to Carroll Gardens

A classic pace of life that's teeming with style
Originally named for Declaration of Independence signer Charles Carroll, Carroll Garden’s cultural history spans most of western Europe from Irish and Norwegian-Americans, who settled here throughout the first half of the 19th century, to a mid-century Italian-American influx, and finally, a late 1990s wave of French immigrants. It’s history may sound typical, but in a sea of “trendy Brooklyn ‘hoods”, Carroll Gardens remains an anomaly for one vital reason: newcomers remain notoriously committed to preserving and supporting the communities that first called it home.

What to Expect

Diverse dining and shopping options, parks, and culture options come nights and weekends.

Scenic strolls, restaurant patios, and gathering spots are among the top reasons to love life in Carroll Gardens. Bocce ball, tennis, and dozens of playgrounds throughout Carroll Park and the streets surrounding spots such as Brooklyn Public Library’s Clinton Street branch are among the public places that add to the tight-knit vibe that newcomers love about life here.

The Lifestyle

Independently upscale. Carroll Gardens is packed with cozy boutiques and artisanal food shops rather than extensions of shops you’ll find on Madison Avenue or in downtown Manhattan.

Parallel thoroughfares Court and Smith streets are often credited as cultural parallels, too: the former is a hub for generations-old Italian butcher shops and European bakeries, while the latter is a hotbed of sleek indie clothing boutiques and showrooms, and critically acclaimed restaurants and cocktail bars including The Grocery and Brooklyn Social that are commonly referred to as “Brooklyn’s Restaurant Row.”

The Market

Multi-unit brownstones and an increasing number of high-rise developments.

Long-term residents from the 1960s through the 1990s invested in Carroll Gardens’ beautifully street-scaped brownstones from the start, but the housing market continues to grow, due in large part to new rental and condominium buildings along Union, President, Court, and Rapelye streets.

You'll Fall in Love With

The picture-esque curb appeal and thriving, diverse small business scene.

Carroll Gardens is uniformly charming, but no two blocks are the same. Stylish local flavor abounds, from cobblers and sidewalk cafes to hip vintage outposts selling everything from dusty books to designer label clothing.
