Top 20 Fort Greene, New York vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Fort Greene has long played an important role in Brooklyn’s artistic and cultural life. The neighbourhood was home to writers Walt Whitman and John Steinbeck, and today serves as the stomping ground of notable artists like filmmaker Spike Lee and musician Erykah Badu. Your neighbours will be a diverse mix of families and professionals from all walks of life, who love the the neighbourhood's mellow, laid-back feel and picturesque leafy streets of beautiful brownstone homes. Another draw is the lush greenery of Fort Greene Park (all 30 acres of it), as well as the Brooklyn Flea that pops up on weekends. If you want buzzing nightlife right on your doorstep, then this isn't the place but we won't hold that against this otherwise delightful pocket of Brooklyn. Transport-wise, it's about a thirty minute train across to Downtown Manhattan.
