About Vinegar Hill Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Vinegar Hill is and small waterfront enclave located between Dumbo (to the west) and the Brooklyn Navy Yard (to the east). It was once dubbed “Irishtown” due to the high population of Irish-American residents. In addition to the warehouse and industrial buildings are pre-Civil War brick and frame houses. Recently, condominiums and apartment building have popped up from redeveloped industrial buildings. Narrow cobblestone streets, tree-lined sidewalks and pre-Civil War architecture characterize this neighborhood rich in history. The old-timey ambience of the neighborhood is still in tact giving it an unpretentious and tranquil vibe. As more developments happen and rental prices continue to rise, in Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo, more residents will trickle in.
