Descriptions of 261 Cumberland St

Just one block shy of calling Fort Greene Park your respective backyard, merely 4 minutes walking distance to Atlantic Terminal, Barclays Center, Target, Brooklyn's own cafe/restaurant row along Dekalb Av and Fulton St, the weekend Farmer's market, Brooklyn Flea, PLUS an awesome array of boutique shops. Being on the top floor of an elevator building allows for a good amount of natural light to enter the space enough to explore the classic and modern sensibilities offered. _Elevator Building. Zee Grant (May 2014)
So, you're looking for a great location, close to Atlantic Terminal, right by the park, with loads of character, high ceilings, hardwood floors, tons of light, in a pre-war elevator building and close to everything. Spacious, sunny, pre-war stunner with two walk-in closets, barely a half a block from Fort Greene Park and its spectacular Farmers Market. Dennis LaPrade (May 2014)
Elevator, Intercom, Restaurants nearby, Tree-lined block, Shopping nearby. Simon Day (Apr 2012)
