Crown Heights is located in central Brooklyn. It is bordered by Prospect Park to the west, Flatbush to the south, Brownsville to the east, and Bedford-Stuyvesant to the north.
Today, Crown Heights is a vibrant up-and-coming area with over 150,000 residents. The neighborhood is undergoing rapid change, with a wonderful blend of culture, food, shops, and living areas. Crown Heights is home to a diverse population, joining other neighborhoods in making up the melting pot of Brooklyn. Walking down the thoroughfares of Nostrand Avenue, Utica Avenue, and Franklin Avenue, one can find ethnic cuisine from all over the Caribbean, from Trinidadian roti to Jamaican jerk chicken and beyond. Dozens of new restaurants and cafés are opening up around town provide other cultural fare, such as Australian coffee and pastries at Glass Shop, Mexican food at Chavella's and the classic American cuisine of Dutch Boy Burger. Nightlife is still relatively sparse, but Franklin Park and Crown Inn are notable standouts. In the Spring, the West-Indian Day Parade brings out people from many different nations, dressed in wildly bright colors and playing music from their homelands. Other noteworthy landmarks include the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Brooklyn Museum and Children’s Museum.
