Having a storied history and a diverse community, Crown Heights is a dynamic neighborhood in the borough of Brooklyn. For a long time the area has been home to many Jewish and West Indian immigrants. Despite a recent renaissance Crown Heights still maintains much of its traditional culture. The area was once home to Ebbets Field, the home stadium of the Brooklyn Dodgers franchise, before its closing in 1957. Today, many attractions can be found in Crown Heights like the Brooklyn Children’s Museum. Furthermore, every Labor Day the West Indian Carnival comes to Crown Heights and features colorful displays, delicious food, and traditional music.
