The south Brooklyn standout is safe, quiet, and close to harborside jogging paths and parks. A diverse mix of blue-collar Italian, Irish, and Arab communities take advantage of good public schools, excellent housing stock, and a better-than-you-think food scene. The commute into Manhattan—about 40 minutes to Union Square without waiting or walking time—is pushing the limits of what most people will tolerate, but that’s why rents ($1,275 average for a two-bedroom) remain so affordable.
