You can find just about any type of home in Brooklyn. Single family homes are available in just about any neighborhoods. Some are attached homes, but many are detached as well. You can even find yard space in Brooklyn if you look hard enough. In the midst of so many people, having a bit of privacy is a dream of many who live in the Borough. In fact, Brooklyn, until 1898, was an independent city of its own. It remains a distinct area of the larger city until today. When looking at Brooklyn properties, you can see the history of the city in every neighborhood.At least two neighborhoods in Brooklyn still maintain names derived from the early Dutch settlers in the area. The Dutch settlement of “Midwout” became the neighborhood of Midwood, located between Prospect Park and Coney Island. The settlement of “Vlacke Bos” is the Dutch translation for the neighborhood of Flatbush. This neighborhood encompasses the area just south of Brooklyn College. These are just two neighborhoods that show ethnic enclaves mixed with people from many other parts. These are just two areas to look for Brooklyn properties in.
The growth of Brooklyn came in the early part of the 19th century as the waterfront area began growing. Annexing the city of Williamsburgh in 1854 brought even more economic growth to the city. Railroads came to the area in the latter part of the 1800′s and helped to continue the growth of the city. Links in Brighton Beach, Flatbush, Gravesend, and New Utrecht are just examples. You can find these historical areas still part of Brooklyn in the names of the neighborhoods. You can find Brooklyn properties in these areas ready for you to inhabit or renovate. You can see the diversity of housing in these areas from single family units to large multifamily dwellings.
Of course, the building of the Brooklyn Bridge, completed in 1883, brought major changes to the Borough. Easier access to Manhattan brought additional growth in neighborhoods close to the northwest shore line and the East River. By 1898, Brooklyn became part of the modern New York City. Yet, the housing and other Brooklyn properties show the history and diversity of its origins. If you want to become part of this historical area, contact us at Massada Home Sales.
