Neighborhood Description

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.

Crown Heights first arose as an aristocratic neighborhood intended for Manhattan’s growing bourgeois population. With its brownstone buildings, beautiful, tree-lined streets, and parks, Crown Heights became a premiere NYC neighborhood by the 1920s. However, after World War Two and throughout the twentieth century, Crown Heights, like many other areas in the rest of the country, became a site of turbulent race relations. The area is infamous for the Crown Heights Riot, which unveiled tensions between Black and Jewish communities and, ultimately, led to a more harmonious relationship between the two communities.

The area’s past racial tension inspired two contemporary films: A documentary called Project 2x1 (2013) featuring the neighborhood’s Caribbean and Hasidic residents and a 2004 film called Crown Heights, set in the aftermath of the Crown Heights Riot, about an Orthodox Rabbi who helps two youths (one Hasidic and one African-American) collaborate in forming a hip-hop group.

Crown Heights is served by the 2/3 and 4/5 trains at Franklin, Nostrand, Kingston and Utica Avenue, and the 2 and 5 trains at President Street. Crown Heights is also easily accessed by bus including the B12, B14, B17, B43, B44, B46, and the B45, B15, and B65 that run North of Eastern Parkway.
