Downtown Brooklyn

Brooklyn’s largest central business district, the area has seen an influx of upscale development in both its business and residential sector since a 2004 rezoning paved the way for private and public investors to funnel millions into the construction of luxury apartments and transit improvements. Mega-developments like City Point and 340 Flatbush grow ever skyward, rivaling Manhattan’s glassy towers, while traditional Brooklyn establishments like Borough Hall and Junior’s Cheesecake remain stalwartly old school in their shadow.
