Downtown Brooklyn

When you rent in Downtown Brooklyn, you'll see a fascinating mix: a major commercial center, a hub of civic activity and a growing residential area. As New York City's third-largest business district, the neighborhood features landmark buildings like the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower. Following a rezoning in 2004, Downtown Brooklyn has become home to new town homes and condo towers. Neighborhood attractions include a farmers' market, the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the New York Transit Museum. Downtown Brooklyn also is home to MetroTech Center, a hub for business and education. The area features significant green space, including a 10-acre park.
