Residents consider Cobble Hill the perfect village within a large city. Court and Smith Streets are the two main centers of commerce in the area. Various cafes, coffee shops, bookstores, and boutiques can be found along these streets. If you want to go out for a drink Char No. 4 is a popular choice for Whiskey lovers paired with their famous bacon. For less serious drinks head over to the Clover Club where you will be served a selection of pre Prohibition drinks, an assortment of fizzes, swizzles and sours. Need groceries? Trader Joe's opened on Court Street in a former bank, providing residents with a value oriented and locally grown grocery shopping experience.
Anybody interested in joining a gym in the area will find several options to choose from, including the Dodge YMCA and a branch of the New York Sports Club or just go for a stroll in Cobble Hill, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Since then, it has maintained the classic feel of a small community while being adjacent to the active area of Downtown Brooklyn.
