Located in northwestern Brooklyn, just south of downtown, Boerum Hill offers the serenity of a suburb and the excitement of a bustling urban environment. Residents enjoy access to a host of eclectic restaurants and unique shops strewn along the main commercial thoroughfares—Smith Street and Atlantic Avenue.
In more residential parts of the neighborhood, historic brownstones and townhouses nestle up to quiet, tree-lined streets. Boerum Hill has two sister neighborhoods, Cobble Hill and Carol Gardens, which are both situated west of Boerum Hill. The iconic Barclays Center lies just east of Boerum Hill, hosting exciting events like Brooklyn Nets basketball games, boxing matches, and concerts. Convenient subway access makes getting around from Boerum Hill easy.
