Living in Fort Greene

Fort Greene apartments entice a jovial community of racially and economically diverse residents. In this up and coming area, people of all stripes seem to get along, much to the amazement of sociologists. Its well-preserved mid-19th century Eastlake and Italianate architecture, gracious low-rise housing, and tree-lined streets all combine to build Fort Greene's appeal. Named for a Revolutionary War fort, the neighborhood is enclosed by Flushing, Flatbush, Vanderbilt, and Atlantic avenues.

Back in 1870, more than half of the African-Americans who lived in Brooklyn lived in Fort Greene. It was a prestigious area with beautiful new row houses. Brooklyn's first park was built here. Walt Whitman called for its construction to improve the hard conditions of those who lived in a shantytown off Myrtle Avenue. Olmsted and Vaux, the same pair who designed Manhattan's Central Park, created Fort Greene Park on the site of the old fort. The hard times that affected New York City in the second half of the 20th century also took their toll on Fort Greene. Residents successfully struggled to restore their neighborhood by lobbying for Historic District status. Crime ebbed considerably. Now, Fort Greene is home to old and young, black and white, and rich and poor.

Fort Greene Lifestyle and Entertainment

Fort Greene has become a destination for foodies. The restaurant known as No. 7 may be the only place in the world you can order a General Tso's Filet-o-Fish sandwich. Just a block up Fulton Street, stop in at the Habana Outpost for a Cuban meal and enjoy the outdoor seating. Wine bars, beer gardens, and lounges are easy to find, too.

To get your shopping done, you can start at the Atlantic Terminal Mall where you'll find big box stores like Target. Fulton Street and DeKalb Avenue are also good places to seek out a retail experience. The 30-acre Fort Greene Park presents residents with tennis and basketball courts, playgrounds, and barbeques. It hosts a Summer Literary Festival and a Saturday farmer's market year-round.

Fort Greene Info and the Rental Market

One-bedroom apartments in Fort Greene go for an average of $2,500 a month. You're most likely to end up in a low-rise building, such as a brownstone. There are a few blocks of mid-rise New York Housing Authority buildings on the north side of Myrtle Avenue as well. As for your neighbors, expect all kinds. That's one of the real perks of Fort Greene.

Transportation from and to Fort Greene is excellent. The Atlantic Terminal of the Long Island Railroad is at the cross of Atlantic and Flatbush avenues. Many major subway lines stop in Fort Greene. It will take you approximately half an hour to reach Manhattan on one of these trains.

Fort Greene Resources

The Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Brooklyn Music School, the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA), and other resources all fall within Fort Greene's borders. In the park, the Prison Ship Martyr's Monument honors the more than 11,000 patriots who died on British ships during the American Revolution. Brooklyn Technical High School is one of New York City's most competitive public schools. The Brooklyn Hospital Center operates an emergency room and other clinics. Fort Greene is cared for by Brooklyn Community Board No. 2.
