Greenwood Heights Real Estate

Characterized by its mix of old and new residential development, Greenwood Heights offers a range of options for prospective residents of all kinds. New and newly-renovated condo developments dot the streets of the neighborhood, but the majority of residences are wooden-framed attached row houses mixed with brick and vinyl-sided one- and two-family homes. This variety of styles helps provide Greenwood Heights real estate with a varied and eclectic feel. Recent home listings and sales in Greenwood Heights have reflected a median sales price of $1.14 million.

Open Green Spaces

One of Greenwood Heights’ biggest draws are its open green spaces. The Slope Park playground, ideal for the neighborhood’s children, sits at the corner of Sixth Avenue and 18th Street. Most impressive of the neighborhood’s green spaces, however, is the historic Green-Wood Cemetery. Though an untraditional destination, the popularity of the Green-Wood Cemetery’s open green spaces was the direct inspiration for Prospect Park and Central Park. The cemetery offers locals a place to go bird watching, wander along walking trails, view wonderful examples of local flora, examine beautiful historic sites, and attend seasonal public events. Greenwood Heights real estate is perfect for nature lovers, and people who enjoy the combination of city with tranquil nature parks, and walks..

Greenwood Heights Real Estate :Emerging Restaurant and Bar Scene

New condominium developers descending upon Greenwood Heights in recent years have brought a number of restaurateurs with them. Iron Station, a bar designed to evoke Southern charm, recently opened, as did J’eatjet?, a new gastropub-styled eatery. These welcome new additions join neighborhood mainstays including Korzo, Lot 2, Toby’s Public House, and Giuseppina’s as well as popular coffee houses such as Roots Cafe and Southside Coffee.

Quiet Community

Greenwood Heights is ideal for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of much of Brooklyn. Despite recent development, the neighborhood has retained an off-the-beaten-path atmosphere. In particular, plenty of street parking and quieter side streets will appeal to those looking to bring a little suburban tranquility into the city proper.
