Cobble Hill


Brooklyn’s Cobble Hill neighborhood dates back to the mid-17th century, when Dutch farmers first settled the land. Fast forward a few centuries to the 1960s, when a neighborhood movement saved the trapezoidal area now known as Cobble Hill Park from becoming a six-story apartment building. The park was dedicated in the 1965 and reconstructed in 1989 in a formal, geometric pattern that synched with the area’s 19th-century architecture. Today it’s a crown jewel of the cozy enclave, drawing locals of all ages, including children, who take full advantage of the park’s small playground.
