Vive Le Carroll Gardens! New York Magazine just rated Carroll Gardens in top 10 areas to live/work/play in NYC!!
The Brownstone Brooklyn neighborhood that was once an Italian stronghold is quickly becoming the city's Little Paris - fueled by a new French program at a local public school.
Neighborhood playgrounds have recently filled up with French-speaking tots - making it easier these days to find croissants than cannoli on Court St., where merchants have seen a surge in French families looking for favorite products from home.
French government officials estimate there are as many as 20,000 French residents in Brooklyn, more than in Manhattan, with the largest concentration in Carroll Gardens. Butcher John McFadden, whose family owns Staubitz Meat Market, has seen a surge in demand for French-style racks of lamb, boeuf bourguignon and filet mignon. 'It's doubled, tripled, recently,' McFadden said. 'It's good for us.'
Carroll Gardens' other main strip, Smith St., has become so French that restaurant owners launched a Bastille Day celebration. 'If you come to my restaurant on Saturday or Sunday, everyone is speaking French,' said Jean-Jacques Bernat, whose postcard-perfect French bistro on Smith St., Provence en Boite, has begun stocking special candies and other goodies, especially for the nabe's growing numbers of homesick expats.
Our lovely home is perfect for families with children, couples who enjoy award winning restaurants and entertainment, all in a friendly village just minutes from the heart of NYC. We bike over the Brooklyn Bridge to work every day and on weekends we love to bike at Prospect Park and Red Hook Park. Everything you need is blocks away - parks, clubs, swimming pool, soccer fields, boating, bike rentals, parking, public transportation. We have lived in the area for over twenty years and like all our neighbors, simply love our village and I'm sure you will too.
Our home provides a sunny and spacious retreat after site seeing and the many activities NYC provides. We are located in a village a walk away from one of the greatest cities in the world. Everything you need is only a few blocks away, surrounded by parks and friendly neighbors. We just installed a giant chess set in the backyard!
Close to all that New York City has to offer!
