Cobble Hill

Cobble Hill

Shhh! Don’t tell anybody about this adorably quaint (but not cutesy) gem just below Brooklyn Heights — but cheaper. Somehow Cobble Hill has managed to hold on to its traditional working class Italian ethnicity (an episode of The Sopranos was filmed here) as newcomers have added cozily inventive restaurants and charming local boutiques to the great old bars. Beautiful row house, in a dizzying array of historic styles, wrap around quiet, tree-lined streets and kid-filled backyards. Old-time meat markets sit next to the more upscale bars and chic new shops on the commercial arteries of Smith and Court Streets.

What's There

Good transit -- three stops on the F train lands you in Manhattan; the ride to Midtown takes about 25 minutes.

The Vibe

Laid-back, just trendy enough.

Not-So-Guilty Pleasure

Potluck suppers in Cobble Hill Park.

What's Not There

High-rises.
