History

Carroll Gardens is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. The area is named for Charles Carroll, a revolutionary war veteran who was also the only Roman Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence. Carroll Park, a block-long area of playgrounds, walkways and sitting areas between Court and Smith Streets, with Carroll Street as its southern boundary, was constructed in the late 19th century and is also named for Carroll.

A long-standing Italian American neighborhood of family-run stores, Carroll Gardens is now sprinkled with cafes, boutiques and antique shops. It shares its northern boundary with Cobble Hill at Degraw Street and Boerum Hill at Warren Street, while extending south to Hamilton Avenue and Red Hook. Prior to the gentrification movement in the mid-1960s, this part of South Brooklyn was considered by residents to be part of Red Hook. In the late 1940s, however, the southern tip of Red Hook was cut off from the rest of the neighborhood by the building of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and Gowanus Expressway, and the area now known as Carroll Gardens took on a separate and distinct character of its own. Today, Carroll Gardens is a middle-class, upscale community, while Red Hook, which had retained its working-class, waterfront ambience, has only recently begun to feel the effects of gentrification.

Before Italian Americans settled in the area, Carroll Gardens was settled by Irish Americans in the early 19th century and, in the mid-19th century, by Norwegian Americans. They founded the Norwegian Seamans' Church, an imposing brownstone structure that was once visited by the King of Norway during an official visit to the United States, and which still stands (although it is now a condominium) on the corner of First Place and Clinton Street. In 1846, Richard Butts created the front "gardens" to the famous brownstone houses in the oldest section of the neighborhood. The brownstones are set back from the street by 30-40 feet, to create atypical (for Brooklyn) large front gardens. The Carroll Gardens Historic District, which includes some of the finest examples of these brownstones with large front gardens, is bounded roughly by Carroll Street to the south, President Street to the north, Hoyt Street to the east and Smith Street to the west.

This is really a "Home away from home" for me. I have a grandchild just 2 blocks from the apartment and have been a regular guest. Joe and Jamie have made a lovely and comfortable place to enjoy and relax in. I just wouldn't stay anywhere else (unless they're booked). The apartment is a great value for Brooklyn which suffers from a lack of hotel accommodation near neighborhoods. This apartment is also just steps away from the F train and many great restaurants. Perfect!

My daughter and I had a "girl's weekend" at your brownstone. The location was great - literally just a few steps from the subway terminal. We went all over Manhattan - saw Wicked, ate some wonderful food (there are some good restaurants within a block of the property also), and shopped ALOT. When we tired of shopping, we went to some of the museums. All in all, a great location. The brownstone makes you feel like you're getting the true New York experience. There's a really nice park across the street for the kids. We'd definately come back.

This is a great apartment in a beautiful location with super easy access to the subway into the City. Stayed here with my brother so it was the perfect set up - we each had our own bedroom spaces but then we could hang out together in the common areas, including that fabulous outdoor deck that's been mentioned in other comments. Very spacious & comfortable, bright, clean & well cared for. Jamie made this all so easy to arrange and was very gracious about accommodating our schedule. Highly recommended.

This was a really great place to stay!! The subway was right down the street, and it was a short ride into Manhattan. The house itself was clean, quiet and perfect. Joe and Jamie were wonderful hosts- unobtrusive but there if you need them.


Mary & Andy Pracht Hilton Head Island, SC

This November will be our second visit to your cute Brownstone. It is well equipped and very comfortable for the three of us. I highly recommend it to someone wanting to visit Brooklyn!!


Mary Phoenix, AZ

Great neighborhood and beautiful brownstone. Proximity to the subway can't be beat! Park across the street is lovely for kids. We will be back!


Marybeth7 Gilbert, AZ

Our second stay was just as enjoyable as our first. With great shops, restaurants, the subway, a park, and the Brooklyn Bridge all within walking distance of the apt., the location is perfect. The apt. is roomy and comfortable with everything we need. So much better than a hotel. We'll be back.


Leslie Frye Auburn, WA

We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at Carroll Gardens House. It is well-furnished and fabulously located, just 1/2 a block from the F/G line with easy connections to the A train to/from JFK. Our hosts were congenial and helpful. I highly recommend CGH and would definitely stay there again.

We stayed at this property for a week in April of 2009. It was clean and spacious and the landlords were very nice and helpful. The location is great--a quiet area of Brooklyn away from the hustle of NYC but still within very easy reach of The Big Apple. The Subway, which every tourist should get acquainted with, is on the corner of the street! I would recommend this place to anyone.

We can't say enough to describe our stay at CGH. The neighborhood was so quaint that it reminded us of Sesame Street in a way. The park across the street (and I mean a stone's throw) was perfect for our 3 yr old and 1 yr old. The apartment was large enough for our family, very clean, and very comfortable. The restaurants in the neighborhood were high quality yet affordable. And Sal's gelato, italian ices, and sorbetto's were the cherry on top. We loved spending our days in busy Manhattan, then taking the subway "home" to our quiet flat. Thanks so much Jamie and Joe! We hope to return soon.

We had a great 9-day stay over the Christmas/New York break. Fabulous, warm house. Great location, groovy neighbourhood with yummy food shops. Subway station in same block. Would very highly recommend to anyone wanting to feel a bit more a local rather than a tourist. Would stay again without hesitation. thanks Joe.

We stayed a week in June 2009 and had a wonderful time. The location of this property was excellent, close to a number of good restaurants and just a minute from the subway. We appreciated the open space of the park across the street as well. The unit itself is well cared for and has a nice feel. We have already talked about coming back soon.

I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip to NYC. Living in your brownstone was a complete joy. We fell in love with Carroll Gardens. Our trip went smoothly except for the two times we took the wrong subway. We found the people of New York City very friendly and helpful, when we looked lost. We were able to do everything we had planned. Seeing the Unisphere from the 1964-65 World's Fair was a dream come true for me. I collect mementos from this fair. Walking through Brooklyn Heights and across the Brooklyn Bridge was amazing.
Thanks for letting us borrow the Brooklyn Walking Tour book. I hope we were not too noisy. Sometimes, it is hard to keep two teenage boys quiet. Our time in NYC flew by too quickly. Hopefully, I will get to visit NYC again and be able to stay at your brownstone. Thanks again for everything. Best of luck in all you do.

We stayed at the Carroll garden house 10 day's on a trip to NY. The app. is nice in size, clean, well managed and with all the necessary equipment. Subway is 200 meters away. Park in front of the house and great surounding area with many good restaurants and all the shop's you need for a stay. We felt very safe and well placed at this nice place. 10 minutes to Manhatten on sub. Owners live in the house and are very nice and helpfull. All the arrangements without any problem. We are very happy to have found the place and can recommend the flat without any hesitation.

Really wonderful--better than the pictures. Great neighborhood. Apartment is clean and fresh, very large rooms, no thrift shop furnishings or odd smells. Landlords are generous and helpful.


Lindsay and Justin Carlsbad, CA

We've always stayed in the city and didn't know what to expect from Brooklyn; now I understand why my sister loves it so much! We're so glad we found the Carroll Gardens house - what a great alternative to staying in a hotel or a B&B; not to mention much more affordable. We (me, my boyfriend and parents who flew in from Ohio) felt right at home. The CG house is located in a quiet neighborhood and is in walking distance of GREAT restaurants and cool shops.
Thanks to Joe and Jamie for being wonderful hosts! We can't wait to come back :)


Stephen and Margaret Lynch Ireland

Spent a great week in Carroll Gardens in April. Such a convenient location for shops, eating out and the subway to Manhatten. A lovely apartment with most obliging and welcoming hosts. We also enjoyed sitting out on the deck in the evening resting our feet and sipping a glass of wine.


Kelly Los Angeles, CA

My two children and I recently stayed at the Carroll Garden House and it was a wonderful home away from home. We have been to NY numerous times staying in various hotels and the amount of money we saved and above all, the spaciousness that the apartment provided us was unparalleled. The owners have beautifully furnished the apartment and I must say that having the luxury (in NY at least!) of the private deck was a huge plus for me at the end of the night. Joe and Jamie were very accommodating and I would highly recommend the CGH to anyone visiting Brooklyn.


Chuck Carlson Aptos, CA

We stayed at 284 President Street for a week in April 2008 and loved it. It was perfect for us. The apartment had everything we needed. The owners are on site and made us feel very welcome. We particularly enjoyed the deck off the kitchen,where we read and relaxed. The apartment is in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood with a park across the street. There are shops and restaurants nearby, and we took advantage of them. The subway is just half a block away, so we were minutes away from other parts of Brooklyn and Manhattan. We've been to NYC many times, but we have never had the comfort and flexibility that we had on President Street. We would go back without hesitation.
