Brownstone is an architecturally-inspired term that refers to the classic sandstone buildings found in neighbourhoods such as Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Boreum Hill, Fort Greene, Park Slope and Prospect Heights. Alongside families who have been living here for years, these residential districts now house young families, artists, professionals and freelancers employed in creative fields. The result makes for dynamic, colourful communities that combine old and new with bits of different cultures.
