Cobble Hill, Brooklyn: A Village-Like Vibe With Towering Prices

As towers join church spires in piercing the sky, there is a sense that the rest of Brooklyn is encroaching on Cobble Hill. But the neighborhood remains lively as well as lyrical, with its handsome townhouse rows and insistent greenery.

Ms. Breedlove stressed the importance of preserving the sidewalk culture. "It used to be a stoop culture, but people don't necessarily sit on stoops anymore," she said. "They do walk on the sidewalk and talk to each other every day."


Never-Before-Seen NASA Photos Join The Latest Trends in High-End Amenities

It is getting harder for developers to come up with new ideas for amenities to attract residents to luxury buildings. From roof top decks to spas, everything's been done (or so it seems). Instead of trying to find something completely unique, the latest trend is for developers to take what is already out there to a much more granular level -- to a place no man has gone before, you might say?

5 River Park, the first new building in this Brooklyn megaproject, has over 20,000 square feet of amenities for only 25 residences, ensuring that you will rarely be fighting for time at their immersive music room and performance stage. Or maybe building neighbor Norah Jones could stop by for a quick lesson. River Park, located near the waterfront in Cobble Hill, is also close to the Brooklyn Academy of Music and surrounded by live music venues.

The building is one of five components that make up the Fortis Property Group- developed project and is the first new construction to rise within the development. Other River Park components are a condo conversion of the Polhemus Building, a series of eight townhouses that will neighbor the Polhemus Building and be known as the Polhemus Townhouses; a 15-story condo building named 1 River Park with 48 units; and a 475-foot-tall building at 2 River Park that will be the tallest within the project.

Views of the B.Q.E. and Beyond

With the windows open at the Cobble Hill House, the sound of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, which the new condo building overlooks, is — delicately put — a constant roar.

But close the triple-glazed, parlor-style windows and the condo units at 78 Amity Street, at the corner of Hicks Street, transform into quiet, light-filled spacious homes with fantastic East River views, just beyond the expressway.
