Google Maps Route: https://goo.gl/maps/azLrbeyc5U9nyNxi7

A walk through the neighborhood of Fort Greene, Brooklyn.

From Wikipedia:
“Fort Greene is a neighborhood in the northwestern part of the New York City borough of Brooklyn. The neighborhood is bounded by Flushing Avenue and the Brooklyn Navy Yard to the north, Flatbush Avenue Extension and Downtown Brooklyn to the west, Atlantic Avenue and Prospect Heights to the south, and Vanderbilt Avenue and Clinton Hill to the east. Fort Greene is listed on the New York State Registry and on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a New York City-designated Historic District.

The neighborhood is named after an American Revolutionary War era fort that was built in 1776 under the supervision of General Nathanael Greene of Rhode Island. General Greene aided General George Washington during the Battle of Long Island in 1776. Fort Greene Park, originally called “Washington Park” and Brooklyn’s first, is also derived from General Greene’s name and from the neighborhood. In 1864, Fort Greene Park was redesigned by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux; the park notably includes the Prison Ship Martyrs’ Monument and crypt, which honors some 11,500 patriots who died aboard British prison ships during the American Revolution.

Fort Greene contains many examples of mid-19th century Italianate and Eastlake architecture, most of which is well preserved. It is known for its many tree-lined streets and elegant low-rise housing. Fort Greene is also home to the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower, which, for over 80 years, was the tallest building in Brooklyn. The neighborhood is close to the Atlantic Terminal station of the Long Island Rail Road and has access to many New York City Subway services.

Fort Greene is part of Brooklyn Community District 2 and its primary ZIP Codes are 11201, 11205, 11217, and 11238. It is patrolled by the 88th Precinct of the New York City Police Department. Politically it is represented by the New York City Council’s 35th District.”

  2. hey!!! im a big fan- could you do NORTH fort greene, like north of myrtle ave around vanderbilt and the projects? thats what some call the real fort greene haha. Haven't been there in a while though, so it would be nice to see a walk through that gritty industrial area!

  3. My earliest memories in life are of living in Fort Greene. Went to the park many times and have memories of the monument to our martyrs. Great area – am glad to see it making a big comeback.

  4. Thanks for the memories Action Kid! I graduated from Brooklyn Tech in 1965 (Bldg. with radio Antenna across from Ft. Greene Park) I also attended live Rock & Roll shows at the Brooklyn Paramount (now the LIU gym)

  5. These were the style of videos that got me hooked on your channel. I love the narrated walks too but these are perfect for the Smart TV while working from home. Have a safe trip back to the US!
