Dating back to the 17th century, Wallabout is one of Brooklyn’s oldest nabes, evidenced in the area’s pre-Civil War wood frame rowhouses and not one but two historic district designations. Separated from its namesake Wallabout Bay by the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Wallabout is also separated by its lack of public transportation. Still, this brings a quaint isolation to the area, and residents revere the neighborhood as far more than a periphery of adjacent Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.
