Cobble Hill’s architecture includes row houses and brownstones dating back to the 19th century. The neighborhood’s lively feel comes partially from its vibrant Italian and French populations—you can still see longtime residents playing bocce, and the bars, streets and restaurants fill with revelers for Bastille Day celebrations. The area, which neighbors Carroll Gardens and Boerum Hill, is a good choice for a leisurely day of shopping at cozy boutiques or a relaxed night of dining and drinking.
