As a designated Historic District, Fort Greene is a close-knit and diverse neighborhood with a lovely village appeal and has always been at the forefront of the borough’s culture and creativity. The broad spectrum of adventures and destinations in close proximity are endless.
Fort Greene Park, with its grassy fields, hilltop views, playgrounds, tennis and basketball courts, and seasonal farmers market, is a rare urban oasis.

Renowned cultural activities in the worlds of music, theatre, dance and poetry abound from BAM'S always chock-filled calendar to the illuminating exhibitions and lectures at MoCADA. The nearby Pratt Sculpture Garden and the BRIC Arts Media House, with its multi-purpose performance space, have been symbols of Fort Green's authentic and captivating artistry. From coffee shops, cafes, and food trucks to Michelin-starred restaurants, the choices are authentic and infinite.
