Also at Atlantic Terminal is the The Long Island Railroad (LIRR) with rail connections to the Long Island Beaches, Hamptons, and Mauntauk. Yellow Cabs are available on Atlantic Avenue, just one block away, and car services are plentiful.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Fort Greene and Clinton Hill are perfect for strolling and people watching. Populated by artists and musicians, the neighborhood attracted actors and others who enjoy the eclectic, diverse, and laid back vibe in the beautiful architectural streets. There are hundreds of restaurants, boutiques, bars, cafes, parks, and playgrounds just steps away. Some of our favorite restaurants, cafes, and bakeries are just a few short blocks away.

On your stay, join locals at one of the many nearby outdoor bars or pubs (such as Habana Outpost, Hot Bird, or Der Shwarze Kolner, Dekalb Market) or parks. Dozens of acclaimed restaurants featuring word and fusion fares are within walking distance. Hope on the train to get to the music venues in Williamsburg, the acclaimed restaurants of Smith Street, or a night out in Manhattan.

The Brooklyn Flea is just one block away and provides all the best culinary exposures that Brooklyn has to offer in one place, in addition of course, to fantastic hipster and antique flea finds. Fort Greene is also home to the internationally renowned Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) where you can attend theatre, dance, symphonies, watch movies, eat dinner and dance to live music at the BAM café, or attend a dance or exercise class. Pratt Institute is also just a short walk away and the brand new Brooklyn Nets Barclay Stadium is within 10 minutes walk. Of course, with the subway only 2 minutes away, you could really go anywhere you please. And don’t forget to swing by Cakeman Raven for Fort Greene’s famous red-velvet cake.

PARKS AND PLAYGROUNDS
Nearby larger parks include Fort Greene Park and Prospect Park, which houses a zoo, botanic gardens, carousel, and much more. Across the street from the apartment is a football field with track that is open to the public for morning or evening exercise. There are also half a dozen playgrounds with play equipment targeted for babies through children up to 12 years old within 3-5 blocks away that include sprinklers, basketball courts, and open fields. Fort Greene is a very kid-friendly neighborhood with boutiques, restaurants, bookstores, and studios dedicated to kids of all ages.

The brand new Brooklyn Nets stadium is within 5 minutes walk and will open this fall. Of course, with the subway so close, you could really go anywhere you please (see below for details).

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: We love Brooklyn and hope we can share our love for our neighborhood and our community with you. You'll often find us sitting on our stoop with our toddler on summer evenings enjoying the neighborhood. We hope to make everyone love Brooklyn as much as we do.

                  Why the Owner Chose Brooklyn:
                  We live in an 1866 Brownstone with classic charm paired with modern appeal. In New York, location is everything, and with the nearby subways and activities, and restaurants, this apartment is perfect as a home base on your next vacation or business trip.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                  With the angle of the street, the windows in our apartment get direct sunlight, making them bright and airy. We are located in the beautiful Fort Greene Historic District
