In the heart
At the nexus of Brooklyn's premier neighborhoods.
"A NEIGHBORHOOD IN THE MIDDLE OF EVERYTHING"
- The New York Times
The nexus of life in the borough
Downtown Brooklyn has long been the nexus of life in the borough, the magnificent Dime Savings Bank of Brooklyn located in a key hub. It’s this connectivity to both people and place that makes The Brooklyn Tower such an important new building to the ongoing cultural, social, and business growth of the borough. This is Brooklyn.
The Brooklyn Tower is located in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn – one of the most connected neighborhoods in New York City, with unrivaled transportation access to 13 subway lines, 11 commuter trains via the LIRR at Atlantic Center, and 22 Citi bike stations. Downtown Brooklyn lives at the intersection of three of Brooklyn’s most beloved Brownstone neighborhoods (Fort Greene, Boerum Hill, and Cobble Hill), just minutes from DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights.
Historic and beloved parks and public spaces
Many of Brooklyn’s most beloved parks and greenspaces are located nearby, with the historic and leafy open spaces of Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn’s first park dating back to 1847, only a couple of blocks from your front door, and Brooklyn Bridge Park, spanning 1.3 miles of Brooklyn’s waterfront and featuring playgrounds, basketball and volleyball courts, sports fields, and Brooklyn’s newest roller skating rink. A little further lies the sprawling Prospect Park, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux.
An educational enclave
Brooklyn is home to some of the nation’s premier public and private academic institutions. Dynamic population growth and residential development has led to an increasing array of educational establishments in the area, offering culturally diverse programming and learning opportunities for children of all ages. Downtown Brooklyn is also a key higher education hub for the city, with 11 educational institutions, such as the New York University Tandon School of Engineering, Brooklyn Law School, and Pratt Institute. And unequaled transportation options mean access to leading schools and universities throughout the city is just a quick subway ride away.
At the center of Brooklyn's Cultural District
When it comes to cultural life, Brooklyn has one of the richest, most distinct, and diverse communities in the world. And The Brooklyn Tower, located in the center of the Brooklyn Cultural District, is in the heart of it all. Anchored by the Brooklyn Academy of Music, nearly 40 cultural, theatric, and performance groups, across virtually every discipline, form a dynamic cultural environment that fills the neighborhood with music, drama, dance, and art. From the 18,000+ seat Barclays Center to the Brooklyn Museum and the Brooklyn Ballet, it is easy to see why the district is widely considered to be one of New York City’s greatest cultural destinations.
