Mill Basin Apartments

One of Brooklyn’s most affluent communities, Mill Basin has some of New York City’s most extravagant private homes, some even comparable to mansions in Manhattan.

The house architecture is multi-varied, and over the top, with mansions featuring turrets and other architectural oddities. But for the more conservative, there are also more modest homes to choose from, including beach-side bungalows, and multi-family dwellings. Regardless of the cost, the community is experiencing a resurgence of interest in those wanting to live there, and apartment living has become accessible with real estate developers constructing high-density buildings in the community over the past decade or so.

More about Mill Basin

The 20th century saw an influx of Jewish and Italian residents, and more recently Israeli and Russian communities have flourished. Europeans arrived in Mill Basin in 1664, after the Lenape Indians sold the property to John Tilton, Jr. and Samuel Spicer, and fishing was its primary industry for many years, until industrialization turned it into a manufacturing community with the opening of the Crooke Smelting Company. During the 1960s, Mill Basin was ravaged by the toll manufacturing took on the landscape, only to emerge as one of Brooklyn’s priciest markets mere decades later. Mill Basin, having originally been developed as a high-end waterfront community in the 1940s and 1950s, is now pristine and immaculate again, and the beauty of the neighborhood is part of what makes it so appealing. Within Mill Basin are two smaller neighborhoods, Old Mill Basin and Georgetown, which are equally picturesque.

Perfect for the active resident, Mill Basin’s Jamaica Bay water-front makes it a destination for fishers and boaters, and it is home to a public golf course, as well as Lindower Park, which has basketball, baseball and handball courts is a hub of the community.

The commute to Manhattan is reasonable, but the B leaves you on Kings Highway, and you have to bus it from there. Shopping is on Flatbush and Avenue U, where you can find a mall and a multi-plex. In the community there are strip malls, plazas, nail salons and supermarkets, so even though it is remote and hard to access, there are many resources within Mill Basin to take advantage of.
