Carroll Gardens


Runs from Degraw Street on the north and the Gowanus Canal on the east, to the BrooklynQueens
Expressway on the west and south.

Many visitors and residents are drawn by Carroll Gardens’ stock of historic townhouses for sale and for rent. The
neighborhood also offers many exciting new condos, including Third + Bond, an award winning contextual complex
of townhouse-style condos, 523 Court Street, a modern seven story elevator building with private terraces and
Manhattan views, as well as the wide open lofts at 505 Court Street.

In the ’70s, some 150 buildings along both Carroll and President Streets were classified as a landmark district, noted
for their “quiet dignity.” Helping to create this aura were the streets in Carroll Gardens designed with thirty-three-foot
setbacks, creating unusually large and welcoming front yards for its rowhouses. True to its name, the Carroll Gardens
neighborhood is a great place to live if you have a green thumb. Step inside the Carroll Gardens brownstones and
you’ll find incredible detailing like original wood trim, lead-paned windows, fireplaces, and high, sculptured ceilings.
Step outside, and you might think that you’re in Greenwich Village — you’ll find cozy area spots like Cafe Doré for roti,
Caputo’s Fine Foods for fresh mozzarella, and Olive’s Very Vintage for party dresses and bracelets. Carroll Park, which
runs from Court to Smith streets, is one of Brooklyn’s oldest parks. In addition to its welcome greenery, this splendid
park has picnic tables and two Bocce Ball courts.
