Top 20 Carroll Gardens, New York vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Carroll Gardens is one of Brooklyn’s oldest Italian enclaves, and has recently become extremely popular with families looking for a kid-friendly neighbourhood with a casual, friendly vibe. Carroll Gardens is filled with tree-lined streets of brownstone homes, with plenty of cosy boutiques, artisanal food shops, and restaurant patios to add to the delightful atmosphere. Parallel thoroughfares Court and Smith streets are often credited as cultural parallels too: the former is a hub for generations-old Italian butcher shops and European bakeries, while the latter is a hotbed of sleek indie clothing boutiques and showrooms, and critically acclaimed restaurants and cocktail bars, including The Grocery and Brooklyn Social. The F train from Carroll Street Station will whizz you across to Downtown Manhattan in about twenty minutes, if and when you feel the draw of the New York that never sleeps.
