The neighborhood is undergoing rapid change, with a wonderful blend of culture, food, shops and living areas. The area is home to a diverse population, including many people of West Indian descent, along with Orthodox Jews and others who make up the melting pot of Brooklyn.
Walking down the thoroughfares of Nostrand Ave., Utica Ave. and Franklin Ave., one can find ethnic cuisine from all over the Caribbean, from Trindadian roti to Jamaican jerk chicken and beyond. Several new restaurants and cafes opening up around town provide other cultural fare, such as the Australian coffee and pastries at the Glass Shop, Mexican at Chavella's and the classic American of Dutch Boy Burger. Nightlife is relatively sparse, but Franklin Park and the Starlite Lounge are notable standouts. In the Spring, the West-Indian Day Parade brings out people from many different nations, dressed in wildly bright colors playing music from their homelands. This fantastic event must be experienced.Find Crown Heights apartments
