Welcome to BROOKLYN
At first, Brooklyn was the new Manhattan, now Brooklyn is the new Brooklyn and Manhattanites envy our down-to-earth sophistication. You know why you want to be here, and at Brooklyn Suites we place you right in the middle of it all.
Popular for its boutiques, restaurants and rows of brownstones, Boerum Hill is home to many artists and young families. You can be in Manhattan within minutes via 12 subway lines; not that you would need to. With Smith Street’s restaurant row, Court Street Farmers Market, BAM, Barclay Center, Brooklyn Promenade, Brooklyn Heights, DUMBO and Park Slope just a stroll away!
Wedged between mighty neighbors Bed Stuy and Fort Greene, Clinton Hill offers its own quiet charm. Less grandiose then Fort Greene and less edgy than Bed Stuy, Clinton Hill is a relaxed place where Pratt University design students, long-time residents and European transplants happily coexist. Pretty brownstone row houses, lovingly renovated by young newcomers, alternate with community gardens, small family-run eateries and cute corner stores.
Fort Greene is not just about fancy homes and landmarked brownstone rows. It’s not even just about its enticing selection of international cuisines. Above all, Fort Greene is about the arts. Scattered around the Brooklyn Academy of Music, find world-class concert, ballet and stage performances as well as art house movie presentations any day and night of the week. Regardless of whether you actually make use the cultural offerings, you will feel a sense of poise and beauty pervading the neighborhood.
When North Park Slope became a magnet for upwardly mobile families, newcomer yuppies displaced old-school Brooklynites and the area lost some of its yesteryear charm. However, here in South Slope you still find genuine salt-of-the-Earth Brooklyn with a pleasant admixture of Park Slope sophistication. You’ll hear longtime residents in worn coffee shops gossip and joke in their warm Brooklyn inflections while smartly dressed moms sipping organic coffee pass by with their designer strollers.
