Stunning architecture, sprawling parks, organic-mindedness, communal awareness, grittiness, artistic haven, urban character—whatever it is that you seek: Brooklyn is a great place to call home.

Nestled between Brooklyn Heights and Red Hook is a gorgeous assemblage of historic neighborhoods, syllabically abbreviated by some of its trendy inhabitants to BOCOCA. Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, and Carroll Gardens offer superior dining and nightlife, a dash of the enchanting essence of the old world, and an unparalleled antique district befitting of even the most discriminating of treasure hunters.

Although the three unbearably charming neighborhoods each boast their own borders, their geographic proximity to one another earned the trio the stylish abbreviation.
