Carroll Gardens Neighborhood Guide
Back in 1846 surveyor Richard Butts had a plan for Brooklyn's third-ever neighborhood - front yards that were 33.5 feet deep back to the houses. Thus was born Carroll Gardens. Named for an Irish immigrant named Charles Carroll, many of the first immigrants who planted those gardens were also Irish, but the neighborhood eventually became an Italian stronghold. The signature front yard gardens are still here and so is the Italian flavor, although the demographics have changed rapidly as Carroll Gardens lures in diverse young professional families. What has never changed is the small town atmosphere, protected by zoning laws that have restrained building heights over the years. This is a quiet commuter neighborhood, long on friendliness and short on pretension.
Architecture and landmarks
The residential architecture is almost as eye-catching as the well-tended gardens in the neighborhood, much of which has been designated a historic district. Two- and three-story brownstones predominate, in an array of Greek Revival and Italianate styles. The John Rankin House, which once stood alone in the center of a wealthy merchant's farmland in 1840, is probably the best of the bunch. There are many ecclesiastic Carroll Gardens landmarks including the multi-styled South Congregational Church complex, the Victorian Gothic St. Paul's Episcopal Church and St. Mary's Star of the Sea Church constructed entirely from stones and marble imported from Europe. The century-old Carroll Gardens Library on Clinton Street is considered the most beautiful of Brooklyn's libraries. It was built with industrialist Andrew Carnegie's money during a benevolent spending spree that resulted in over 2,500 libraries around the world.
The New York subway has two lines to Carroll Gardens: the F and G. They service mostly a working crowd and are dark on the weekend. Bus services run along Court, Smith and 9th Streets. Midtown Manhattan is a half-hour ride away.
The New York City Department of Education has made sure the families attracted to Carroll Gardens are not wanting for quality education. Public schools include zoned PS 32 Samuel Mills Sprole, with an emphasis on literacy writing and mathematics instruction; PS 58 The Carroll, known for its collaborative team teaching and after-school activities; and the Brooklyn New School, PS 146, with a hands-on approach to the standards-based curriculum.
Open seven days a week, ProHEALTH Urgent Care on Court Street offers treatment for minor injuries and non-life threatening injuries for adults and children. No appointments required.
Carroll Gardens is part of the responsibility of the 76th Precinct. With a reported 14.39 crimes per 1,000 residents in 2015, the neighborhood is one of the safest in Northern Brooklyn.
Things to do
Although many of the houses in Carroll Gardens come equipped with a driveway, residents can easily get by without an automobile. There are retail choices for every pocketbook from artisanal boutiques to vintage shops to multi-generational merchants long accustomed to providing for their neighbors. The Carroll Gardens Greenmarket opposite Carroll Park, open every Sunday of the year, draws residents in with fresh, local produce from New York-area farms and frequent guest demonstrations.
Carroll Park, which began life as a private garden, offers ball yards and playgrounds and a spray shower in summer. The Friends of Carroll Park handle all the landscaping, organize the neighborhood Halloween parade and stage regular community events in the park such as movie nights. You can always get a game of bocce here, the outdoor bowling game of choice for the Italian community.
At night, restaurants along Court Street and Smith Street, many still Italian-influenced, are famous enough to bring outsiders to Carroll Gardens. Some are highly affordable, others reserved for special occasions. Meanwhile, the many neighborhood taverns cater to a local crowd of daters, sports fans or dive bar denizens. Movie fans will want to stop at Cammareri Brothers Bakery on 62nd Street, where Cher and Nicholas Cage fell in love during Moonstruck; the breads and pastries have been crafted from 100 percent semolina flour in brick ovens here for almost 100 years.
