Cobble Hill was originally settled by Dutch farmers in the mid-1600s, and remains impressively preserved to this day, in large part thanks to The New York City Landmarks and Protection Commission. Despite its longstanding historical status, Cobble Hill’s cultural shifts and influences are among the most diverse in the borough, spanning overlapping influxes of Italian, Native American, Dutch, Swedish, and English residents. Generations-old meat markets, barbershops, and brownstones provide equal reasons for long-time residents and newcomers to love calling it home.
Life in Cobble Hill is largely defined by pedestrian-friendly streetscapes and gathering spots. Biking, outdoor brunches, and casual strolls down Court Street provide equal opportunities for shopping, dining, and enjoying the sunshine. Likewise, local business owners pride themselves on inviting street fronts and windows that encourage passersby to linger between casual brunches, afterwork bar hops, and trips to the park.
Many new homeowners choose to reinvest in the neighborhood from the ground up, often restoring and refurbishing the picturesque front porches and building fronts upon first moving in. Thanks to the well-preserved architecture and well-maintained street front parking, available brownstones are extremely competitive. Newer units along Hicks Street and Strong Place also come at a premium, but offer more floor plan flexibly for first-time buyers and singles.
