Neighborhood Description

The Fort Green area is sometimes referred to as Little Europe due to the many Europeans who have made this beautiful neighborhood their home.

Fort Greene’s current population is around 15,900. The neighborhood is valued as being both diverse and prestigious. The architecture consists predominantly of brownstones. Because many apartments are in small, older brownstones, most of the buildings lack modern amenities like elevators and doormen, but make up for it with their tree-lined, townhouse charm. In addition, pet-friendly rentals and in-basement laundry facilities are common. Fort Greene Park is a neighborhood focal point that hosts a wonderful farmer’s market on weekends. Restaurants are found primarily on DeKalb and Fulton, while smaller streets like South Portland and Elliot Street have quieter Fort Greene apartments for rent. Some noteworthy restaurants include The Smoke Joint, Habana Outpost, and Mediba Restaurant. The neighborhood is also frequently referenced in music, including “Brooklyn’s Finest” by Jay-Z and Notorious BIG.

Fort Greene’s namesake is a fort built during the American Revolutionary War, under the supervision of General Nathanael Greene. The area was once rural, but as early as 1940s farmers began selling small plots of land for residential development. Walt Whitman was among the neighborhood’s nineteenth century residents. As population in the neighborhood increased, Fort Greene Park was developed to preserve the last of the land from development. The success of this park prompted the construction of the now-famous Prospect Park. Fort Greene is also home to the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM). At its time of construction, BAM was considered the most complex architectural development since Madison Square Garden. From the 1960s through the 1980s, Fort Greene faced city-wide poverty, crime, and drug use. However, in the late 1980s and early 1990s, artists, preservationists, and professionals began to claim and restore the neighborhood. Among them was filmmaker Spike Lee, who contributed to the neighborhood’s resurgence with his production company, 40 Acres & A Mule Filmworks.

Fort Greene is located in the northwest part of Brooklyn, south across the East River from Lower Manhattan, west of Prospect Park, north of Prospect Heights, and east of Downtown Brooklyn.

Subway transportation options include the 2/3, 4/5, B and Q to Atlantic Ave., the 2/3 and 4/5 to Nevins St., the B,M, and Q/R to DeKalb Ave., the G to Fulton Street, Clinton-Washington Avenue, and Classon Avenue, and the C to Lafayette Avenue or Clinton-Washington Avenue.
