Brooklyn’s official motto, “Eendraght Maeckt Maght,” Dutch for “In unity, there is strength,” which holds true today with Brooklyn’s diverse residency. Neighborhoods such as Williamsburg have large Jewish populations, Brighton Beach and Sheepshead have many Russians and Ukrainians, Bedford-Stuyvesant has a rich African-American population, Sunset Park houses the third largest Chinese-American population in New York, and Bushwick is where Brooklyn’s Hispanic American population is most concentrated. Basically, the food in Brooklyn is awesome.
Park Slope, one of New York’s most desirable neighborhoods as rated by New York Magazine, resides in Brooklyn. This neighborhood, located on Brooklyn’s northwestern side right by Prospect Park, is renown for its excellent public schools, high-quality dining, historic buildings and architecture, and strong citizenry involvement. For example, the Park Food Slope Coop is a membership-based only grocery store where members have to volunteer for several hours each month to qualify. What results, however, is a community that works together and creates its own similarities and character. As one would expect, Park Slope’s rental prices are in the higher tiers, thus leaving a wealthy residency and some of the finest luxury apartments, lofts and townhomes in Brooklyn. Also, with Prospect Park so close, Park Slope is notorious for its pet-friendly atmosphere.
If there is a cultural capital of Brooklyn, it would have to be amongst the neighborhoods of Fort Greene and Capitol Hill. You’ll find in Capitol Hill art organizations such as The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts and 651 Arts as well as many theaters while many famous writers have lived in the area such as Walt Whitman, Truman Capote, and Marianne Moore. Fort Greene and Capitol Hill are home to many of Brooklyn’s most famous schools such as the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Brooklyn Music School and Pratt Institute. As you can guess, the residency in these two neighborhoods consist of many creatives and students. Students looking for cheap apartments for rent in this area are going to head east towards Bedford-Stuyvesant where the homes for rent are less expensive.
Besides being across the river from Manhattan, Brooklyn has all sorts of opportunities for fun. For example, the Gateway National Recreation Area borders Brooklyn to the east and is the perfect place for an outdoor adventure with activities such as boating, biking, camping, and cross country skiing during the winter. Meanwhile, the southern part of the city is home to the historical Coney Island along with the Brooklyn Cyclones minor league baseball stadium. Finding apartments on Brooklyn’s southern parts will result in many high-rise options. Over the last few years, the area has seen a surge in apartment construction, so for those apartment searching for brand new apartments, this is the area to go.
For those that want to be close to the ocean and still pay a cheap rent, Sheepshead Bay is one of Brooklyn’s more affordable communities. Fishing is a strong cultural aspect of this community that has long been the place of many Turkish and Ukranian immigrants. You’ll find brick row houses, six-story apartment buildings and larger single-family homes in these neighborhoods, all contributing the slower, family-oriented pace of life. Finding an apartment with all bills paid will not be as difficult as it would be in Park Slope, but using an apartment guide over craigslist will definitely help find quality options.
Despite how close it is to Park Slope, Red Hook has a much different atmosphere and is less expensive to live in. Although once the home of Al Capone, Red Hook has a very clean atmosphere with fun bars (Fort Defiance has amazing cocktails) and restaurants (Lobster Pound for excellent seafood) and amazing views of the Statue of Liberty from its many piers. The area feels somewhat isolated form the rest of Brooklyn due to its lack of public transportation, though most residents agree that this is only a positive thing. However, for newcomers, many of the industrial warehouses alongside the waterfront have been converted into living spaces, great for those looking for studio apartments with all bills paid. The rest of the neighborhoods are comprised of attached and detached houses that add to the small-town vibe of Rest Hook.
