Brooklyn Real Estate Information
Boerum Hill Real Estate

Bordered by Schermerhorn Street to the north and Warren Street to the south, Boerum Hill shares Court Street with Cobble Hill and Brooklyn Heights; as well as 4th Avenue with Park Slope. By the turn of the century this simple plot of Dutch farmland had become the theater center of Brooklyn, the nearby Brooklyn Academy of Music surrounded by playhouses of all description. Boerum Hill was now considered home by traveling vaudeville actors and by the 1920's, the area's afordable rooming houses began to attract the legendary Mohawk Indian steelworkers as well.

Since the 1970's, Boerum Hill 's beautiful brownstones have attracted wave upon wave of young urban homeowners. Decorators and renovators alike will have to look no further than Boerum Hill's Atlantic Avenue, now the antiques capitol of Brooklyn. And after a heavy day's shopping at the Nearby Fulton and Atlantic Malls, the neighborhood's Mideastern food and gourmet coffee shops will more soothe the weary soul.

A couple of years ago, a stroll down Smith Street meant contending with caving sidewalks, dusty bodegas, and a lot of empty storefronts. These days, expect stroller gridlock, restaurants that serve tart tatin, and haute hippie boutiques. Smith Street has become the standard by which other recovering commercial streets (Fifth Avenue, De Kalb) are judged. The speed of its revival has entrepreneurs imagining buried treasure behind every rolled-down storefront. Boerum Hill, which has a large public-housing presence, has been slower in remaking itself, though development is rapidly displacing the old-timers.
