Located in Brooklyn, Cobble Hill is at the center of a collection of charming neighborhoods. Like its neighbors, it sports leafy, shaded streets lined with elegant brownstones, brick rowhouses, and refurbished carriage houses -- many of which date to the 1800s. Adding to the historic feel are Victorian-style buildings and Gothic Revival churches. It all feels appropriate when you learn that this was a contested area during the American Revolution. (The British razed the eponymous hill to better protect their fort in nearby Brooklyn Heights).
But within this setting is a vibrant neighborhood full of boutiques, coffee shops, trendy restaurants, and bars where old timers mix it up with young families, professionals, and a French expats. And when you're looking for some calm, the tiny Cobble Hill Park is a quiet place to read or collect your thoughts.
Cobble Hill is bordered on the north by Brooklyn Heights, on the east by Boerum Hill, on the south by Carroll Gardens, and on the west by Columbia Street Waterfront District.
