Boerum Hill

Boerum Hill

Boerum Hill keeps benefiting from Brooklyn's economic bursts, and so do the people smart enough to buy apartments or homes in the area. First, it was the residential explosion and retail improvements to downtown Brooklyn. Next it was the coming of Barclays Center, the most important real estate happening in the borough since the Bridge. 

Now, it's the retail maturation along Atlantic Avenue. Clothing boutique Steve Allen, interior designer B. Moore, and restaurants such as Bacchus give this big street a small-town feel. 

The quiet side streets are filled with renovated brownstones?some hyper-modern, others traditional. In all four seasons, there is something special to see in Boerum Hill. In the past two years, prices have increased with the area's popularity and prime location near the F/G train at Bergen Street and 11 subway lines running through nearby Barclays Center. 

New developments will begin to pop up on major thoroughfares. The success of Gowanus will spill over to Boerum Hill, improving value on the south side of the neighborhood.
