Carroll Gardens

While boasting trendy bars, eateries, and shops, Carroll Gardens exudes its classic allure with elegant brownstones on tree-lined streets, historic churches, and traditional Italian bakeries dotting the neighborhood.

Nestled in southwest Brooklyn, Carroll Gardens is renowned for its Italian heritage, Carroll Gardens boasts authentic trattorias, cozy cafes, and specialty food shops that celebrate the neighborhood’s cultural heritage.

The neighborhood delineation gets tricky around the boundaries of Cobble Hill and Boerum Hill, so a nickname for the three neighborhoods is BoCoCa.

Neighborhood Highlights:

  • A stroll down Court Street will leave you encountering several charming boutiques, cozy cafes, Italian bakeries, restaurants, and fun bars.
  • Smith Street is another bustling thoroughfare through Carroll Gardens dotted with Italian eateries, trendy bars, cafes, and shops.
  • Tucked away on a quiet block between both Court and Smith Streets is Carroll Park, a cherished, serene green space home to the Carroll Park War Memorial, which honors the local residents who served in World War I and a playground for children.
