Columbia Street Waterfront District

Columbia Street Waterfront District is a compact neighborhood spanning 22 blocks nestledmbetween the Brooklyn Queens Expressway (BQE) and the New York Harbor.

This micro-neighborhood is a hidden gem in Brooklyn and is celebrated for its maritime history and industrial charm. Once a bustling shipping hub, the area retains its historic cobblestone streets and warehouses, now repurposed into art studios and chic residences. 

Visitors are drawn to the district’s unique blend of old-world charm and modern creativity, exploring eclectic boutiques, fun bars, and great restaurants in this pocket-sized area of the city.
