The Crown Heights South neighborhood of the New York City borough of Brooklyn sits a few blocks southeast of downtown Brooklyn and a few blocks east of the Hudson River. Its close proximity to downtown and easy access to Manhattan make it very attractive to families as well as young professionals and students attending nearby Brooklyn College.
Beautiful Dutch and European architecture dot the tree-lined streets of the neighborhood, giving it a cozy feel in a thriving borough of New York City. The neighborhood finds itself surrounded by parks and recreation areas large enough to make one feel like they aren't even in a city. Museums and cultural centers can also be found scattered in and around the neighborhood.
Many main roads, including the Prospect Parkway, make it easy to travel outside Brooklyn and into the heart of Manhattan. Many who work in the city tend to prefer living in Crown Heights South because of the low rent and close sense of community here.
