Runs from Court St to Fourth Avenue, with Warren Street as its southern boundary and
Schermerhorn Street forming its border with downtown.
Known for its classic row houses built between 1840 and 1870, Boerum Hill has plenty of contemporary condos
throughout as well. Located just south of downtown Brooklyn, Boerum Hill is quite convenient to many of Brooklyn’s
top attractions including the Brooklyn Academy of Music and The Barclay Arena. Its central location and distinctive
charm attract many buyers and renters.
The Boerum Hill Historic District, an area bounded by Hoyt, Nevins, Pacific and Wyckoff Streets, boasts many gorgeous
row houses that were built in the 1850s during the building boom that followed the initiation of Manhattan-to-Brooklyn
ferry service in 1836. Some of these early Victorian townhouses have been lovingly renovated, and many of the
Boerum Hill brownstones are duplexes and triplexes, with the option to rent a portion of the home. Newer condos in
Boerum Hill often feature outdoor space such as terraces in addition to their open kitchens and oversized windows.
For a green oasis in Boerum Hill, visit the community garden on Hoyt Street, and for a pint, stop by the Brooklyn
Inn, with its authentic carved wooden bar from late 19th century Germany. Smith Street in the center of Boerum Hill
contains Brooklyn’s restaurant row, complementing the many restaurants, shops and boutiques on Atlantic Avenue.
