Map out your Crown Heights itinerary with these neighborhood hot spots.
This wood-burning pizza joint has contributed to the City’s Neapolitan craze, offering pies as tasty as its more famous cousins elsewhere in Brooklyn or Manhattan. Start with the fire-roasted peppers and don’t overlook the artichoke and smoked pancetta pizza.
The folks behind this beer hall—the same ones who founded the phenomenal Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg—know their stuff, stocking it with dozens of bottled and canned beers and a solid selection on tap. Bring a friend and try one of the wine-size bottles of Sur La Mer Brut Cider.
After exploring the BBG’s 52 stunning acres, check out the gift shop—not just for trinkets. You can make a purchase from one of the City’s best selections of plants, bulbs and seeds, even if your garden is only fire-escape-size.
This colorful, participatory museum hosts a variety of weekday activities, but the most fun can be had on the weekend. On Saturdays and Sundays, the Touch Tank and Live Animal Adventure workshops allow kids to interact with animals from the museum’s collection.
Baked goods and stiff drinks make a perfect pair at this neighborhood hot spot, where fresh cupcakes, pies and brownies compete for attention with artisanal cocktails. Teetotalers can just enjoy the simple delights of a classic milk-and-homemade-cookie combo.
