  what's this neighborhood like?

Vinegar Hill is a tiny neighborhood in Brooklyn. It's been enjoying the spillover from its ultra-hip neighbor, DUMBO, and this sleepy area has seen renewed interest from residents and developers. It still maintains a tight-knit community feel, however, and the nights are still quiet. Despite technically bordering the East River all the waterfront property is taken up by a power station.

Vinegar Hill has a collection of restaurants, coffee shops, a bookstore, and a few retailers.

Vinegar Hill is bordered on the north by the East River, on the east by the Navy Yard, on the south by Downtown Brooklyn, and on the west by DUMBO.
