About Carroll Gardens Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Carroll Gardens is 40 blocks of upper-middle class business professionals and elderly residents filling the living spaces of brownstones and attached townhouses. Also known as “Little Paris” thanks to the large number of French expats who have taken up residence in the area, many streets offer a residential feel with beautiful tree canopies and large front gardens. Carroll Gardens is a very convenient commute to the city or other parts of Brooklyn on both the F and G line. Real estate is highly competitive in this sought-after neighborhood. It is not uncommon for most of the cozy neighborhood eateries to host live music or offer patrons outdoor seating, as many restaurants have backyard gardens.
