Growing up in Brooklyn, New York as a kid and then young adult, graduating from Brooklyn College and now as a licensed real estate broker marketing and selling properties in Brooklyn for over 25 years, I have had a unique opportunity to witness the evolution of Brooklyn, New York real estate. Even as a young kid, my identical twin brother and I would ride our bicycles through different Brooklyn neighborhoods to visit our friends. Things were much different then. Real estate in many spectacular Brooklyn neighborhoods has a rich historic architectural mixture influenced by residents from countries as varied as new comers who came here to live. Brooklyn New York real estate is in high demand like never before! While Brooklyn real estate has seen years of incredible value appreciation and sky high prices as well as a decline in value as a result of the economic, mortgage and housing crisis of 2008-2009, the market forces unique to Brooklyn real estate have stabilized since late 2011. The Brooklyn real estate market continues to remain stable resulting in increased selling and buying activity in many neighborhoods.
Brooklyn New York real estate has many emerging and evolving neighborhoods that have incredibly strong market forces and the wind at their back so to speak, where it seems that in the years to come these neighborhoods will continue to become more and more in demand. These neighborhoods are: Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Dumbo, Downtown Brooklyn, Fort Greene, Brooklyn Navy Yard, Clinton Hill, Bedford Stuyvesant, Bushwick, Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Red Hook, Gowanus, Park Slope, South Slope, Windsor Terrace and some others. What continues to fuel the incredible popularity of Brooklyn as the place to live, raise a family, work and play are the vast choices of housing lifestyles, many incredible entertainment venues from BAM in Fort Greene to Barclays Center sports and entertainment arena on Atlantic Ave in Boerum Hill that will be open in late September 19, 2012, museums, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, parks as big and famous as Prospect Park and a few newly opened waterfront parks right across from New York City, magnificent beaches on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean, many amazing restaurants, food and clothing shops , great public and private schools, great doctors and hospitals and very close proximity to Manhattan via public transportation and the highway. Brooklyn has so much to offer that it would not be possible to list it all in one blog. Brooklyn is now not an alternative to Manhattan but a first choice for a lot of home buyers.
