If you're a homebuyer looking for a Brooklyn, NY home, Realtor Charles D'Alessandro is your best guide to this vast borough's array of eclectic neighborhoods and the variety of housing options available in each. Born and raised in Brooklyn, where he also raised his own children, Charles knows New York City's most excitingly diverse borough like the back of his hand.
Encompassing a total area of 96.90 square miles, 26.29 of which is water, Brooklyn lies on the western end of Long Island, linked to Manhattan by the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel and that famed NYC icon, the Brooklyn Bridge. Composed of more than six dozen distinct neighborhoods, Brooklyn is a colorful patchwork of communities and a correspondingly varied housing stock. Also, due to the area's long history - Europeans first settled here during the 1630s - you'll find homes here from a wide range of eras and architectural schools, from those that date back to Pre-Revolutionary times, to Greek Revival structures, Victorian brownstones, and newer constructions of glass and steel from the modernist age to the present.
Your options are virtually endless in Brooklyn. In the serene, harbor-front neighborhood of Bay Ridge in southwest Brooklyn, for example, are many historic homes and mansions, while brownstones line the tree-shaded streets of Brooklyn Heights in northwestern Brooklyn. Then there's DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) where 19th century buildings are enlivened by hip art galleries and performance venues.
