Brooklyn Real Estate: Brownsville Real Estate
Brownsville is a portrait of urban renewal. Multi-family refurbished townhouses and apartment buildings are popping up on its landscape, offering prime opportunity for investors and first-time home-buyers.
Its new schools are also receiving accolades: in 2008 the grade 6-12 Teachers Preparatory School received an “A” grade from the New York City Department of Education, and the transfer school Brownsville Academy earned a “B” the same year.
Pitkin Avenue is the neighborhood’s main commercial thoroughfare, and is home to block upon block of both locally owned businesses and branches of familiar chains. Getting around the city from Brownsville is easy thanks to connections on the 3 and L trains. The neighborhood’s borders are East New York Avenue to the north; the Bay Ridge Long Island Rail Road branch to the south and east; and Remsen Avenue to the west.
