Cobble Hill

One of Brooklyn's oldest communities, Cobble Hill is located inside the northwest portion of Brooklyn. The boundaries vary, given that some say it's from Union Street to Wyckoff/Warren Streets and Fourth Avenue to the Harbor, while others believe it's Atlantic Avenue on the north, Degraw Street on the south, Hicks Street on the west and Court Street on the east.

Along many bluestone streets, you'll pass historic churches, Old World mansions and small cottages. The Cobble Hill Historic District is roughly bordered by Atlantic Avenue to the north, Degraw Street to the south, Court Street to the east, and Hicks Street and BQE's lower levels to the west.

Smith and Court Streets have excellent, eclectic shopping and the neighborhood's green space is Cobble Hill Park. Framed by 19th century townhouses and narrow multi-story brick buildings, there are granite entrance columns heading pathways trimmed with herringbone-patterned brick, benches, a dolphin-decorated water fountain for summer splashes, a playground, picnic tables, a modest lawn and a lovely rose garden. The community's famous annual Halloween parade is held here, as are summertime music concerts.

Housing Stock: Warren Street's brick homes, attached houses (the ones on Verandah Place are highly sought after), turn-of-the-century apartment buildings (now mostly co-ops), multi-family houses and renovated brownstone full-floor apartments and new developments.
