Boerum Hill Apartments

Bordering Cobble Hill and Downtown Brooklyn, Boerum Hill is one of Brooklyn’s prettiest neighborhoods, filled with beautiful brownstone- and tree-lined streets.

The area’s boundaries are Schermerhorn Street to the north and Warren or Wyckoff streets to the south, and Smith or Court streets and Fourth Avenue to the west and east, but Boerum Hill shares many of its characteristics with Cobble Hill and Downtown Brooklyn.

Smith Street, Court Street and Atlantic Avenue are major commercial hubs, filled with unique restaurants, lively bars, boutiques, and brand-name stores, and side streets also hold cafes and shops. Neighborhood restaurant favorites are plentiful, and among them are Mile End, serving a unique twist on classic deli food, Rucola, an Italian restaurant, vegetarian café M.O.B., and the always-popular Nicky’s Vietnamese Sandwiches. Each fall, Atlantic Avenue is host to a huge street festival, Atlantic Antic, which brings vendors, performers, and more to celebrate the neighborhood and Brooklyn.

Boerum Hill is in one of Brooklyn’s most connected transportation areas—it is bordered by the Borough Hall/Court Street Station (2, 3, 4, 5, N and R trains) and the Atlantic/Pacific Station (2, 3, 4, 5, B, D, N, Q and R trains), and the F and G trains stop at Bergen Street. On good weather days, the neighborhood is a pleasant walk to the Brooklyn Bridge or Prospect Park.

More about Boerum Hill

The neighborhood was named for the Boerum family, who had their farm in this area during the period of Dutch settlement in New York. Despite the name, the area is actually flat—the designation may reference that the neighborhood is above what were once marshes bordering Gowanus Creek. Many local buildings are more than 100 years old, and part of the area, the Boerum Hill Historic District, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Now, the neighborhood is populated by professionals and families, and while many residential buildings are pre-war, there is also new construction available. Writer Jonathan Lethem grew up in Boerum Hill and has lived there on and off as an adult; he captured the neighborhood in his novels Motherless Brooklyn and The Fortress of Solitude.
