Neighborhood Guide

Crown Heights

One of Brooklyn’s unsung hot spots, Crown Heights offers easy access to some of the borough’s preeminent institutions: it borders the Brooklyn Museum and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and is home to the Brooklyn Children’s Museum. Known for its populations of Hasidic Jews and Caribbean immigrants, the neighborhood features a mix of cultures—and some very tasty restaurants. Every September the spectacular West Indian American Day Parade draws revelers to the area.
