Flea markets, boutiques, bars, and coffee shops flourish in Fort Greene.


The sort of neighborhood to show outdoor movies and host nearly famous flea markets, Fort Greene makes the most of its tree-lined public spaces. Upscale speakeasies and independent bodegas add to this conspicuously hip Brooklyn neighborhood’s overt charm. Although Fort Greene is replete with places to eat, drink, and relax, its convenient subway accessibility affords easy exploration of other NYC neighborhoods.

Fort Greene is within Brooklyn and bordered by DUMBO, Brooklyn Navy Yard, Vinegar Hill, Boerum Hill, Clinton Hill, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, and Downtown Brooklyn
