Neighborhood Description

The Columbia Street Waterfront District is a thin slice of Brooklyn land between the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.

It is waterfront adjacent, with nearby neighborhoods including Carroll Gardens, Red Hook and Gowanus. This small gem of a Brooklyn district is one of the borough's smallest neighborhoods, but its 22 or so blocks should by no means be overlooked.

In terms of history, Columbia Street Waterfront District is relatively young. While historically, it was full of shipping activity and dockside trades, it is only recently that the area has been transforming into a tiny but neighborly nook for Brooklyn residents.

Columbia District's waterfront locale means it evolved from the same industrial background as Gowanus and Red Hook. However, the gritty vibe of said neighboring districts is less evident here. Instead, the low-rise buildings and un-crowded blocks give it a calmer and friendlier feeling. Becoming acquainted with neighbors is possible here, yet the growing number of renovations and appearing developments implies the future of Columbia district is bright. Friendly and well-rated local eateries are popping up quickly with promise of more small businesses deciding to make their home here.

The Columbia Waterfront District has access to breathtaking views of the Manhattan Skyline, although direct riverside access is blocked due to some distributions terminals. Better public spaces along the water are being slowly considered and invested in, such as the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, which aims to extend down to Louis Valentino Jr. Park in Red Hook. This glimpse into future park works is attracting young families to the area, as well as gay couples and those who are tired of the growing rent prices in BoCoCa (Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens). The increase of buyers purchasing property and investing into this once industrial area means renters will soon be flooding this waterfront treasure.

Columbia Street Waterfront District retains part of its small community charm due to its lack of a subway station, although Smith-9th Street along the F and G lines are a walk away. Buses and cars are a better option for residents of this neighborhood, with the latter being especially convenient due to the tunnel and expressway.
