Brownsville, Brooklyn

By Nabewise


Brownsville, located in east Brooklyn, is a pretty homogenized neighborhood in choice of housing options. Mainly comprised of housing development projects, a recent initiative has taken place to diversify the architectural landscape. Habitat for Humanity recently volunteered its services, building condominiums for forty-one families to revitalize the area. In addition, the building was also constructed with sustainable and energy efficient materials, putting Brownsville on the path to “green” living.

I live in Bed-Stuy and first went when one restaurant owner renamed his store “Obama Fried Chicken” for a short while before caving into pressure and changing it to “Popular Fried Chicken.”Jay D.
