Many residents, even those living and working in and around Manhattan and Brooklyn have never heard of the hyper-specific neighborhood of Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn. Vinegar Hill is along the waterfront which separates Manhattan and Brooklyn, slightly north of DUMBO.
Vinegar Hill is an area which allows peaceful strolls and relaxing existence, even as you’ve got all the energy and activity of Brooklyn in back of you and you’re facing the Lower East Side and Chinatown.
Corcoran (1) offers that “Vinegar Hill…boasts nineteenth-century houses and Belgian-block streets.” Even with the neighborhoods “historical name…there are modern luxury condos sprouting here in Vinegar Hill.”
For the environmentally conscious (Vinegar Hill boasts 100 Gold Street, Brooklyn’s first ‘green’ condo), for those who yearn for a neighborhood and community, or for folks just looking for a slower pace of life, Vinegar Hill could be the answer!
