The architecture consists predominately of tree-lined brownstones. But because most Fort Greene apts for rent are in these small, older brownstones, most of the buildings don’t have elevators or doormen and few of the modern amenities but make up for it with their townhouse charm. Fortunately though, you will find several pet friendly rentals and often will have laundry in the basement.
Fort Greene sometimes goes by the name of Little Europe because of the many Europeans who have made this beautiful neighborhood their home here in Brooklyn. The centerpiece of the neighborhood is Fort Greene Park, which on the weekends has a wonderful Farmer’s market lining its walls. The architecture consists predominately tree-lined brownstones. Restaurants are found primarily on DeKalb and Fulton, while smaller streets like South Portland and Elliot street are where you can find quieter Fort Green apartments for rent.Find Fort Greene apartments
