Vive Le Carroll Gardens! New York Magazine just rated Carroll Gardens in top 10 areas to live/work/play in NYC!!

The Brownstone Brooklyn neighborhood that was once an Italian stronghold is quickly becoming the city's Little Paris - fueled by a new French program at a local public school.

Neighborhood playgrounds have recently filled up with French-speaking tots - making it easier these days to find croissants than cannoli on Court St., where merchants have seen a surge in French families looking for favorite products from home.

French government officials estimate there are as many as 20,000 French residents in Brooklyn, more than in Manhattan, with the largest concentration in Carroll Gardens. Butcher John McFadden, whose family owns Staubitz Meat Market, has seen a surge in demand for French-style racks of lamb, boeuf bourguignon and filet mignon. 'It's doubled, tripled, recently,' McFadden said. 'It's good for us.'

Carroll Gardens' other main strip, Smith St., has become so French that restaurant owners launched a Bastille Day celebration. 'If you come to my restaurant on Saturday or Sunday, everyone is speaking French,' said Jean-Jacques Bernat, whose postcard-perfect French bistro on Smith St., Provence en Boite, has begun stocking special candies and other goodies, especially for the nabe's growing numbers of homesick expats.

Why Loretta chose Gowanus

I bought this property because I live very close by and was able to purchase a second home for my family for when my kids get older. As the story with many Brooklyn neighborhoods, if you don't buy something early for your family your family will not be able to afford to live there in 20 years. I have always loved this neighborhood and it is safe, full of small businesses and is lovely to walk in. Everything you need is just a quick walk away as well, there are plenty of trains to bring you easily into Manhattan. It is the best of both worlds as far as I am concerned

A Place to Stay with Much Convenience

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this triplex, and it was sufficient for the need. It may have been my mistake, but I was under the impression that this property had two bathrooms, but it's truly a one and a half bath. Only one shower was not preferable for the number of people in our party. Also, the cleanliness of the bathrooms in particular was of no issue for us, but it may have been less than desirable for someone bothered by some mildew in the shower, etc.

Of particular advantage was the neighborhood, convenience of restaurants and recreation, and proximity to the subway. Grateful for the place to stay. Completely sufficient, just didn't quite exceed expectations, but it did the trick!

Mixed feelings about this place.

  • 3 of 5

The location is great. Walking distance to the train. Walking distance to the grocery store as well as some of the best restaurants in Brooklyn. The downside of the apartment was there were so many ants. You could not leave any food out for more than a minute or it would be covered in ants. We also could never use the outdoor patio because there is a Koi pond in the backyard and the mosquitoes were unbearable. It was definitely because of the Koi pond because they were no where elese. It seems like a completely pointless thing to have since you can't go out there or even open the back door because of mosquitoes. The other issue was that the freezer was full of old pizzas and we had no room to fit any food we purchased in there, until we noticed they had been expired for a couple of YEARS. Weird! So we did throw those out to make room. It just wasn't very clean. We had to wash dishes before we used them because of old food on them and we had to wash all the sheets on the beds before we slept on them. that kinda sucked. , but at least there is a dishwasher and washer and dryer. So that's a plus I guess, except the cleaning fee was the most we've ever paid to stay anywhere and we travel alot, and we had to do alot of cleaning. So if your looking for location, it's great. Just be prepared to share the apartment with lots of ants. And, it's a 3 bedroom 1 bath. Not 2 bath. That's pretty hard when you have a bunch of girls sharing a shower. The couch does not let out into a bed, so don't consider that a place to sleep. It's 3 queen beds and one twin bed. That's it.

We travel to New York several times a year. Don't think I'd stay here again unless she does better on getting the place cleaned. The cleaning fee is outrageous. The yard was one of the reasons we chose the location because we had 2 kids with us and it's not even usable But, We love Brooklyn!!!! Brooklyn is Awesome!

Great location! Would stay again!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for a large group weekend getaway! We had a group of seven and were very comfortable. We were within walking distance from the subway, bars, and restaurants. It only took about 30 minutes to get to Midtown Manhattan. Loretta was very easy to contact and responded right away when we had questions. Definitely would recommend!

Nice Property. Conviniently located. Go BBQ rest. close by. Safe with high police presece.

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed my stay. Clean and spacious property. Very comfortable. Apartment provided a better social environment than a hotel for us. The fish pond in back drew mosquitos which during a time of the Zika virus was a scare. Would have liked better communication from the property owner. She was slow on responses leading up to the visit. They held on to deposit longer than needed. Certainly don’t expect hotel type communication. Overall, I would return.

Great location and space

  • 3 of 5

The location of this apartment was perfect and within easy walking to subway/trains and lots of lovely restaurants. The apartment was spacious and bright. However out of date food in fridge and cupboards (including medication), used toiletries in bathroom - not acceptable. The compost bin was two thirds full and didn't smell great! Other problem was that we had the triplex and above us we had a group celebrating a wedding both Friday and Saturday nights, which was very disruptive. Left with mixed feelings - more attention to detail and it would have been a better experience.
