Greenwood Apartments

Greenwood, also known as Greenwood Heights, is a neighborhood in South Brooklyn with Park Slope to the north, Sunset Park to the south, Windsor Terrace and Prospect Park to the east and the Gowanus Bay to the west.

The area is a spacious and green one, with the historic and sprawling Greenwood Cemetery giving the district its name.

The appeal of Greenwood is its proximity to busy Brooklyn neighborhoods yet its ability to retain a close-knit community feeling, with its tree lined streets, local bars and lack of congestion. The landmark cemetery has been there since 1838 and granted National Historic Landmark status in 2006. The cemetery's iconic chapel is home to the annual Battle of Long Island commemoration. Countless famous people have been buried in Greenwood cemetery while the wide, lush grounds provide space for current residents to wander, stroll and enjoy some fresh air.

More about Greenwood

While Greenwood has an established history as a New York neighborhood, its name leading back as far as 1846, it has remained off the radar to many Brooklyn renters and buyers - until recently. The overcrowding of neighboring Park Slope and Sunset Park means more families and young couples are being drawn to the bigger, better valued, wood-frame houses of Greenwood. High-rise apartment buildings are also being built, drawing plenty of quaint and well-rated neighborhood bars and restaurants to open between fifth and seventh avenues. Slope Park playground, Prospect Park and Sunset Park offer additional nature for families and lovers of the outdoors. In terms of greenery, the area is a rare New York gem.

In terms of real estate, this area's location and neighborhood feel makes it a great value for those wanting space, quiet and affordability. The noise pollution and fast Manhattan pace are erased when entering Greenwood. Greenwood's diversity epitomizes that authentic Brooklyn melting pot, with residents of Hispanic, Polish, Italian, African American and middle-class Caucasian backgrounds all getting along together. Drivers will enjoy the widely available parking spots and subway commuters still have access to the F, D, G, N and R lines.
