Plenty of adorable shops and knick-knack stalls line Downtown Brooklyn’s main avenues, but the neighbourhood noticeably settles down after the clock strikes five. Public transit options abound in Downtown Brooklyn, so getting anywhere else from here is a breeze.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
