A regal neighborhood serving as the central hub of Brooklyn’s civic functions.
Downtown Brooklyn serves as the borough’s civic and commercial center. Important looking people enter and exit this neighborhood's marble office buildings during business hours. Plenty of adorable shops and knick-knack stalls line Downtown Brooklyn’s main avenues, but the neighborhood noticeably settles down after the clock strikes five. Public transit options abound in Downtown Brooklyn, so getting anywhere else from here is a breeze.
Downtown Brooklyn is within Brooklyn and bordered by DUMBO, Brooklyn Navy Yard, Vinegar Hill, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Boerum Hill, Park Slope, and Fort Greene.
