Fort Greene is a classic Brooklyn neighborhood with tree-and-brownstone-lined blocks and home of the Brooklyn Academy of Music and locally-owned restaurants and shops. However, in recent years it has become overdeveloped and an influx of new, former Manhattan residents has made Fort Greene one of the most expensive places in Brooklyn to live.

This is a charming neighbourhood with some good options for food and drink. The flea market is very chilled and has a wide array of goods on sale and there is also a nice park popular in the morning with dog walkers. Recommended
