Crown Heights 

Crown Heights is located in the central portion of Brooklyn, NY.  Formerly remembered for the three-day long Crown Heights Riots in 1991, the neighborhood is finally overcoming its checkered past and reputation, particularly in the last two years.  It is nestled next to Prospect Park and home to the popular Brooklyn Children's Museum, along with subway stops for four express trains.  Crown Heights is heating up, in particular on the townhouse side of the market where Douglas Elliman broker Alex Maroni says, "if you want a really classic Brooklyn brownstone, it's one of the last affordable neighborhoods where you can get it."  Crown Heights adds spice to Brooklyn's varied mix of neighborhoods, especially with the highly anticipated Labor Day street carnival which cultivates a sincere sense of community.
